“Nowhere is safe” in the French Alps hunting area

Marc Sutton, 34, was killed by a hunter’s stray bullet while riding his mountain bike in woods near Montriond, close to the Swiss border.
Mr. Sutton’s death has prompted authorities to introduce a temporary ban on hunting in Montriond.

Marc was shot while on a popular bike track outside a hunting zone, last year a woman was killed sunbathing in her own garden, and in 2015 a jogger was killed after straying into a hunt which had failed to put up any warning signs. A poll of that was placed in the local French newspaper Le Dauphine showed that 76% agreed that hunting should be banned on weekends in order to prevent more accidents like these.
