A Utah hunterâ€™s dog went from manâ€™s best friend to his worst enemy Sunday.
According to KSL TV, Two men were duck hunting on the Great Salt Lake when one of the would-be duck assassins climbed out of the boat to either set or retrieve decoys.
Unfortunately before plunging into the water, he forgot to unload his 12-gauge. The dog stepped on the shotgun, dispersing 27 pellets into the manâ€™s buttocks about 10 feet away.
The 46-year-old was still recovering Wednesday, and authorities said he only suffered minor injuries partly because he was wearing waders.
Now, I donâ€™t know what this guy was taught in his gun safety courseâ€”maybe he needs a refresherâ€”but I vividly recall being told that if you leave your gun for any reason, leave it unloaded.
The name of the â€śvictimâ€ť has not been released, nor do I expect it to be. As for the pooch? Well, I guess thatâ€™s what you call a real American Gun Dog.
