A man in Norway, who went on a hunting trip in the woods near a cabin, spotted a moose.

The man pulled the trigger of his gun and shot in the direction of the moose.

Unfortunately, the hunter missed the moose and accidentally shot a man while he was sitting on the toilet in the log cabin, police said.

The Norwegian hunter said that he aimed for the beast, but missed, sending the bullet ripping through the log cabin wall and straight for the toilet.

The stray bullet hit an innocent 70-year-old man in the stomach while he was relieving himself.

“The victim was taken to hospital by helicopter. Thankfully, his wounds were not life threatening,” investigator Anders Stroemsaether said. The moose escaped unharmed.

The hunter was taken in for questioning in Hvaler District, about seventy-four kilometers southeast of the capital of Oslo, police said. So far no charges have been filed against the hunter.
