MAN SHOT BY DOG IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

10/12/2004
Associated Press

A hunting dog stepped on a loaded shotgun, firing a blast into the arm of a Klamath Falls man, authorities said.

Matthew Harper, 27, was taken to a Klamath Falls hospital on Sunday and then transferred to Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, where he was in critical condition, the (Klamath Falls) Herald and News reported Monday.

Harper, the son of state Sen. Steve Harper, R-Klamath Falls, was duck hunting with a friend, Steven Smith of Klamath Falls, in the Ball Bay area of Upper Klamath Lake on Sunday.

Harper was pulling their boat to shore when Smith's dog triggered the shotgun. Harper was struck in the upper left arm, the Klamath County sheriff's office said.

A phone message left on Sen. Harper's home answering machine was not returned.
