Austrian politician caught having sex in forest by wild life camera
The Carinthian Hunting Society places cameras in the forest to photograph wild life in their native habitat. One camera captured the wild sex life of an Austrian politician in the Carinthian forest.
The politician has not been named.He could get up to $25,000 in compensation if a court rules his privacy was violated. On the other hand he could be charged with trespassing as the area is clearly marked as no trespassing. However legal experts said the cameras themselves should be clearly marked.
Austrian law restricts the use of surveillance cameras but then these cameras were not intended to photograph people. The incident is sparking a heated debate in Austria about data protection. For more see this article.
