Big Game hunter infamous for his trophy kills plunges to his death
Luciano Ponzetto was infamous for his hunting escapades after pictures of him with his many trophy kills spread on social media last year. In an ironic twist, the 55-year-old fell to his death this past Saturday – hunting.
Ponzetto was hunting wild birds for food with friends in Colle delle Oche, just north of Turin, Italy on Saturday when he slipped on ice and plunged into a gorge.
"He died instantly and there was nothing that could be done,” the spokesperson said.
