A hunter in northern France is claiming that a bullet he fired at a boar bounced off its hide and killed a man over a mile away. The 68-year-old hunter, described as "experienced and level-headed" in a police report, managed to hit a motorist in the head. The driver died of his wounds.

“It’s unheard of,” said Guy Harlé d’Ophove, president of the local hunters’ federation. “The bullet rebounded at almost a right angle. In terms of probability, it’s very unlikely.” 

Police are investigating the incident, and the hunter has been brought in for questioning.
