Conservationists have long planted hidden cameras in forests to observe wildlife's natural habitat.

But the Carinthian Hunting Society got more than it bargained for when the camera snapped images of an Austrian politician having sex in Austria's Carinthian Forest, reports the Telegraph.

The Austrian politician, who has not been named, will get up to $25,000 in compensation if the court rules his privacy was invaded, explains Russia Today.

Meanwhile, the society promised to keep the politician's identity secret and not release the photos.

While legal experts argue the cameras should be marked with signs, the hunting society's lawyer told Austrian public broadcaster ORF people never venture to the clearly marked land that forbids trespassers.

With Austrian laws restricting the use of surveillance cameras, now the incident has sparked another national debate about data protection, a sensitive issue in Austria and Germany, reports Deutsche Spiegel.
