Politician Caught Having Sex in Forest by Hidden Wild Life Camera

Wild life cameras generally capture animals but this one caught a politician in a moment of privacy.

To be fair, politicians are a class of mammal that comes under a fair amount of scrutiny by the public and his actions were certainly wild. But the Carinthia Hunting Society in Austria which owns the cameras probably had other animal observation in mind.

The Society set up hidden cameras in hunting zones that are off-limits to foot traffic in order to monitor forest wild life. What they got was some footage of an unnamed Austrian politician in a particularly amorous encounter.

Luckily for this Casanova, the Society is keeping his name and the footage a secret but we do know that the wild life cameras caught him having sex in the forest.

Feathers are ruffled about the cameras given Austria's strict privacy laws regarding surveillance cameras. The politician may get as much as $25,000 in a court case against the society and his legal team argues that the cameras should be clearly marked with signs.

But Society members are getting their backs up about that last part.

The politician was, after all, in a forbidden area and the Society says they've never had problems with the cameras before. The chance that other unsuspecting lovers will stumble onto the clearly-marked hunting grounds for a late-night tryst is arguably slim.

Since we don't know his identity, we can't say if the politician's romantic encounter would get him into trouble at home as well as in the office. But he's probably going to be keeping his sexual encounters indoors and away from wild life cameras for privacy's sake.
