Last weekend, a hunter in Los Banos, California was shot by his dog. He is recovering from the gunshot wound. I like to think the canine was attempting to avenge the death of innocent ducks. Apparently, the hunter set down his shotgun with the safety on and walked away to gather his gear. From CBS:
The victim was about 15 yards away, retrieving his decoys, when his female black Labrador retriever stepped on the gun.
Authorities said the dog disengaged the safety and hit the trigger at the same time, firing a shell with #2 shot. The man was struck in on the left side of his upper back.
