An illegal hunting expedition took a bizarre twist for two men who found themselves in the clutches of the police.

The duo had a successful run in hunting, taking down an impala and a springbok. However, their fortune took a turn for the worse when one of them accidentally fired a rifle, hitting his partner in the buttocks.

With no choice but to face the consequences, the two men decided to come clean and report the poaching activity to the police. As a result, one ended up behind bars, while the other was left recovering in a hospital bed under police supervision. Tlokweng Police Station commander, Superintendent Unoziba Rari, confirmed that they received the report on Saturday at around 9pm from the suspect. The incident occurred in Phala-tsa-Motshishi Lands on the outskirts of Tlokweng, where the friends had ventured out for their illegal hunting escapade.
