The hunter denied having voluntarily shot the farmer.
Rabat – A Moroccan farmer has lost his genitals after confronting a hunter in the rural Houdererrane village 90 kilometers east of Rabat.
The elderly assailant is a member of a hunting association, according to the Arabic-language daily Assabah. He and several other members were hunting in the forests of Houderrane, in the Khemisset region.
The farmer confronted the group and asked them to leave his land. A fight broke out, and the elderly hunter shot the farmer, injuring him in his genitals.
Local gendarmes arrived at the scene to arrest the hunter and transport the victim to the Khemisset provincial hospital. Casablanca media reported that the victim later moved to the Ibn Sina University Hospital in Rabat.
The Rabat Court of Appeals transferred the hunter to the regional director of the Royal Khemisset Gendarmerie for a thorough investigation, according to Le360.
The hunter denied having voluntarily shot the farmer. He claimed to have not seen the farmer at the time of the shooting.
The victim, on the other hand, insists that the hunter tried to kill him.
The case will be brought before a judge in the coming days.
