A German woman has lived to tell the tale after she was accidentally shot by a hunter - but her bra apparently stopped the bullet.

The unnamed 41-year-old woman was on a bike ride with her husband in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania when she inadvertently entered the area of a boar hunt.

The woman, who was left with a bruise rather than a bullet wound, was taken to hospital.

Police found a dead boar nearby and suspect that bullet may have struck the woman after ricocheting off the animal, The Telegraph reported. 

Authorities are investigating whether the hunt was properly signposted.
