A fatal case with an unusual shotgun slug injury caused by an accidental discharge of a shotgun used in hunting bear is reported. The slug is old-fashioned, and is no longer on the market. Some old hunters, however, still possess such shotgun slugs, and the possibility of their use must be borne in mind.
