Czech police are seeking help in an unusual case after a deer turned the tables on the hunters and snagged a pursuer’s rifle on his antlers before running away.

捷克警方正就一宗不尋常的案件尋求協助,一頭鹿在逃跑前用鹿角勾走一名追捕者的步槍,轉而佔了獵人們上風。

The deer, frightened by a dog, ran toward one of the hunting party, tore his sleeve and caught a strap of a 0.22 Hornet rifle on his antlers, police said on Tuesday.

警方週二表示,這頭鹿受一隻狗驚嚇,朝狩獵隊的一名獵人奔去,撕裂他的袖子,鹿角抓到一把點二二黃蜂彈口徑的步槍。

""The rifle, which the hunter had slung over his left arm - fortunately without ammo - slipped on the deer’s antlers and disappeared with him,"" the police said.

警方說,「這名獵人本來掛在左手臂的這把步槍─幸好沒彈藥─滑到鹿角上,隨著牠消失。」

""The hunters searched the forest but did not find the gun. He had no other choice than to report the incident to the police,"" the police said, adding anyone who finds the weapon should contact authorities.

警方說,「這些獵人搜索森林,但沒有找到那把槍。他別無選擇,只能報警」,並補充指出,任何發現這把武器的人,都該聯絡當局。
