    First they bite us and now they're shooting us. What's next??

    Man is accidentally shot by his own dog | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News

    ----------------------------------
    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

    So easy to blame the one that cannot defend itself from such accusations.

    Can you explain how else he got shot in the butt with his own shotgun when it was just him and his dog?

    It was an undercover duck posing as a dog, while the ducks kept Fido tied up preventing him to protect his beloved owner from the hideous attach, later let free to take the fall for the shooting.
    Go Ducks!!

    Bottom line, there is no excuse for not following sound firearms safety practices. I am sure buckshot-in-the-butt will be a good reminder for the rest of his life.

    I guess the dog doesn't have a problem with ground sluicing...
