SALT LAKE CITY A bird hunter was shot in the buttocks after his dog stepped on a shotgun laid across the bow of a boat.
Sheriff's Deputy Kevin Potter says the 46-year-old Utah man was duck hunting with a friend when he climbed out of the boat to move decoys.
Potter says the man left his 12-gauge shotgun in the boat and the dog stepped on it, causing it to fire. It wasn't clear whether the safety on the gun was on at the time.
Potter says the man was hit from about 10 feet (three meters) away with 27 pellets of birdshot. He says the man wasn't seriously injured, in part because he was wearing waders. The man was treated at a nearby hospital
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh boy I would be pissed
Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. Captain, that is the way all men should live
Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees. Blessed is the man who's quiver is full You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this going flat out than some people live in their lifetime.
NOW! For the rest of the story! Last year while hunting ducks an unnamed Utah man shot his dog for not responding to commands. The dog was very upset due to the fact the wind was blowing so hard and at the distance he was from the boat he could not clearly hear the weeny hunters voice commands. When the dog returned to the boat bleeding after being shot he had the perceived body language of someone wanting revenge and to get even for being mistreated according to a fellow hunter present. Well now you know the rest of the story!! This year he DID by taking advantage of the hunters stupidity for leaving the shotgun lying in the boat with the safety off! Claiming to be just a dumb dog, no intent was found by the Sheriff's Department regarding the incident. And the dog got off Scott free! And the blame went to the hunter. Private comments from the dog to an unknown source advised I'll bet that Stupid S-B will think twice before he shoots me again! Wonder how he likes his own medicine!
That's my take on the truth of this story posted by Mobile Marine!
