If you go out in the woods today…

Don’t wear a disguise. Despite what the nursery rhymes tell you this is actually likely to get you shot by hunters. Apparently.

A Greek man camouflaging himself in a goat skin while hunting for Christmas dinner was shot, and killed, by another party out hunting for their own Christmas goat.

Talk about being a scapegoat…

Police said members of a shooting party made up of families opened fire when Christos Constantinou, 49, moved through the undergrowth.

They are thought to have been confused by the fact the victim was disguised in dark goat skins, which are used to camouflage and to mislead their prey.
