  1. His friend did not turn to any pig
    He mistakenly shot his friend due his mistaking some movements in the bush as coming from a bush pig
    Such accidents do occur occasionally
    It's only in sub Saharan Africa with several superstitious folks that such fairy tale is bought into
    It's a common hunting accident
