While out hunting with a bud, the man was evidently standing a few feet away when his dog accidentally fired his gun and put 27 pellets right in his rear.
Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Kevin Potter tells the story best:
“One of the hunters was inside the boat with the dog, and the other hunter was in the water setting up decoy.
The guy in the water had put his 12-gauge shotgun across the bow of their boat.
The dog got excited, was jumping around inside the boat and then it jumped on the gun. It went off, shooting the (man) in the buttocks.”
Potter said the dog did “something to make the gun discharge. He added, “I don’t know if the safety device was on. It’s not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety.”
Or is it??
The man got the bullets extracted at a local hospital. Who knew hunting could be such a pain in the ass?
