Hunter’s bullet enters a house in Hérault

LanguedocLiving, Oct 7

Last Wednesday, a hunter shot at a wild boar, and the bullet entered a house in the village of Laroque, Hérault, north of Montpellier.

Luckily the house was empty, and when the residents returned to their house, they noticed a bullet had gone through a double-glazed window, a cupboard, and then lodged itself into the door frame of a child’s bedroom.

The parents complained to the police immediately, and five hunters were questioned. All the guns were confiscated, and an investigation has been opened to determine which one of the hunters fired the bullet. The hunter risks the permanent seizure of his weapon, and the withdrawal of his hunting licence.

The Mayor of Laroque is now likely to ban shooting near the village.
