Hunters gun down cannabis grower, 60

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

SWISS hunters shot and crit­i­cally injured a 60-year-old man – af­ter mis­tak­ing him for a WILD BOAR.

Fa­bien Sou­plet was har­vest­ing CANNABIS from plants he was il­le­gally grow­ing in the mid­dle of a corn field when he was gunned down.

Twelve hunters were beat­ing in the field to drive the wild boar in front of them – and one opened fire when he spot­ted what he thought was a wild pig run­ning away.

But it turned out to be the 60-year-old, who was clutch­ing a black bin liner filled with cannabis from his se­cret stash.

He was air­lifted to hospi­tal in Lau­sanne and is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Swiss cops are us­ing he­li­copters to find il­le­gal cannabis plan­ta­tions be­ing grown in the mid­dle of other crops.

WHAT do you call a dog with no back legs and metal balls? Sparky.
