Recently, two Sabahan men went on a hunting trip in a jungle at Kampung Sungei Pening, Semenyih early on Saturday morning (June 2). They had planned to hunt some wild boars when the most horrific incident happened.

According to The Sun Daily, one of them, a 40-year-old, was shot dead by his own friend when he was mistaken for a wild boar. His friend, a 44-year-old, reportedly opened fire with a shotgun when he saw movement in some undergrowth, which he thought was caused by the animal.

The victim suffered from a gunshot wound to his abdomen and died shortly after.
