Italian police accused a man who accidentally shot and killed his father on a boar hunt, according to reports in the country.
The men are said to be hunting in an area linking the towns of Postliglione and Sicignano degli Alburni in the southern province of Salerno on Friday.
The son shot his father, Martino Gaudioso, in the lower abdomen after confusing him with a boar, according to La Repubblica.
The two men, aged 34 to 55, were said to be in a very dense area of the forest at the time.
The son contacted emergency services immediately and tried to keep his father alive.
He was charged with manslaughter after Gaudioso died of his injuries, reports local newspaper Salerno Today.
Police also reportedly seized their rifles.
Gaudioso has two other children, according to Onda News in Salerno.
Michela Vittoria Brambilla, president of the Italian League for Animal Defense, compared the Italian camp to the "Wild West" after the tragedy.
She added, "It's a real national emergency."
Sergio Costa, Italy's environment minister, called for a national ban on Sunday hunting in October last year after a teenager was shot and killed near the French border.
The victim was also mistaken for a boar.
