A local hunter in Russia is likely to face two-year
jail term after he had shot dead his 18-year-old son in what he claimed was an
accidental killing.

The hunter disclosed that he had mistaken the eighteen
year old boy for a moose in their rural setting.
The prosecution says the man aimed his rifle at what
he thought was a moose in poor visibility in the snowy wilderness of the
Khanty-Mansiysk district, and fired.

As he approached what he believed would be an animal
carcass, he came upon his teenage boy lying on the forest floor. The young
man was killed instantly by the shot.

“The hunter fired a rifle into a moving object in
poor visibility, mistakenly believing that it was a moose,” investigators told
the Moscow Times.

The father has been charged with causing death by
negligence, which carries a sentence of up to two years in prison.
