Fox Shoots Hunter

Mankiw’s principle four is that “people respond to incentives.”  Apparently foxes do as well (“Fox shoots man during animal-human hunting scuffle”).

MOSCOW - A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said on Thursday. 


  1. Wow! All I can say is that hunter had it coming for him and Karma is real. Haha. Never in my life did I think I would read about an animal shooting a human. This is ridiculous.

  2. What an amazing twist of fate. This is one of those stories that could be used as a parable to real life. How often are humans destroyed by the very things that we first set out to destroy. Very ironic.

    That is incredible. That puts a whole new meaning to "kill or be killed". Indeed people and animals do respond to incentives.
