Australia: Hunter shot by his own dog

September 18, 2012

From News.com.au

One man's shooting trip in Utah, US took a surprise turn when he was shot in the buttocks - by his own dog.
 
The 46-year-old American (naturally) took his best buddy along on a duck hunt in Utah, before his four-legged pal "accidentally" stepped on a shotgun.
 
The man was rushed to hospital but avoided any serious injuries, theTelegraph (UK) reports.
 
How did it happen? The man was getting out of his boat when the dog shot across the bow, as it were.
 
Kevin Potter, the Box Elder County Sheriff's deputy, who wasn't shot, said:
"(The dog) did something to make the gun discharge. I don't know if the safety device was on. It's not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety."
