Dog Shoots Man In The Rear
So much for being mans best friend ! This dog accidentally shot his owner in the butt on a recent hunting trip.Much like the ducks he was hunting, the Utah man never saw it coming. But just how does a four legged critter fire a gun ?
Box Elder County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Potter says the 46-year-old Brigham City man was duck hunting Sunday at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge with a friend when he climbed out of the boat to move decoys.
Potter says the man left his 12-gauge shotgun in the boat. “The dog got excited, was jumping around inside the boat and then it jumped on the gun,” Potter told The Salt Lake Tribune.
It wasn’t clear whether the safety on the gun was on.
Potter says the man was hit from about 10 feet away with 27 pellets of birdshot. He says the man wasn’t seriously injured, in part because he was wearing waders. The man was treated at a hospital. The dog was uninjured.
I guess it’s time to take Fido to a gun safety class
