Russian fishermen accidentally blew up a train using dynamite they planned to use to help them catch fish.

Dynamite fishing is illegal in Russia but very popular as the blast stuns the fish, which then float to the surface and can be scooped from the water.

But the trio of anglers from Olenevod in eastern Russia were caught by police after the explosives went off inside a train from Vladivostok to Ussurisk.

The blast destroyed part of the carriage, but no passengers were hurt.

Reminds me of the Ice Fisher in Canada who took his trusty dog along but thought the owner was playing fetch. As the dog ran out to get the dynamite, the owner shouted desperately to stop the him, but the dog became scared and ran under the owners truck, which was promptly destroyed and sunk, leaving the guy stranded on the lake
