A 53-year-old California man was injured this weekend when his dog accidentally shot him with a shotgun. The man, who was hunting with a partner near Los Banos, Calif., set down his shotgun with the safety on so he could retrieve decoy ducks.
His dog, a female black Labrador retriever, stepped on the gun, disengaging the safety and pulling the trigger. The gun fired a shell with No. 2 shot, and the man was hit in the upper left side of his back. He was treated and released from the hospital that same day.
