Thread: Man is accidentally shot by his own dog

    Default Man is accidentally shot by his own dog

    Dogs are man's best friend. Except, you know, when they're shooting a gun at you.

    And strangely enough, that's what really happened to a hapless dog owner in Brigham City, Utah. The man in question--a 46-year-old hunting enthusiast who is not named in local news reports on the incident--got a behind-full of birdshot courtesy of his loyal canine companion when he was out duck hunting over the weekend.

    KSL.com reports the man and his dog were traveling in a canoe-like boat when the man stepped out into a shallow marsh to set up some decoys. His left his 12-gauge shotgun resting across the bow of the boat, according to Box Elder County Sheriff's Deputy Kevin Potter.

    That's when the dog "did something to make the gun discharge," Potter said. "I don't know if the safety device was on. It's not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety."


    Apparently excited to join his owner in the marsh, the dog jumped up on the boat's bow and stepped on the gun. The gun was fired, hitting the man in the buttocks with 27 pellets of birdshot.

    The man promptly called 9-1-1, and is now reportedly recovering. Potter said that thanks to a well-positioned pair of waders--the hip-length rubber boots he was wearing at the time--the dog owner was able to avoid a more serious gunshot wound.

    I guess You should never carry a Loaded Gun while Hunting.

    And never have a Loaded gun in Your House or at your bedside...

    Trim your dogs toenails and make that a hammer action revolver under the pilllow.

    I saw my cat reading it on yahoo, and wanted to know where we kept the keys to the cabinet.
