KUCHING, Aug 27: A hunting trip for four hunters from Kampung Emperoh Garung turned tragic when one of their friends was accidentally shot dead.

The victim Gading Gambong, 64, was believed to have died instantly from the gunshot wound in the incident that happened this morning at Kampung Emperoh Giam, which is bordering Kampung Garung.

It was understood that the four had gone hunting yesterday when they shot a wild pig within their own village area.

However, the wild pig did not die instantly, which prompted them to do a ‘follow up’ today  to track down the animal.

The trip went on until Kampung Emperoh Giam when the mishap happened.

Police forensic team was dispatched to the scene to investigate.

The victim was brought to Sarawak General Hospital, while the hunters were escorted to Kota Padawan police station.

Police also seized two shotguns used by the hunters. — DayakDaily
