    Post Dog Guilty in Shooting

    http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/stev...-shooting.html

    Sadly, shootings occur too often in Chicago...but never a shooting like this. In Wellington, New Zealand shootings of any kind are infrequent.

    On Saturday, July 10 -A dog accidentally stepped on the trigger of the .22 rifle and ended up firing at his 40-year-old owner.

    The injured man was among a group of four who had just killed and butchered a domestic pig. They were climbing into a SUV to leave when the gun went off.

    The man was flown to Whangarei Hospital , where doctors removed the bullet from his left buttocks.

    Senior Constable Ian Anderson (is this what the lead player in Jethro Tull is doing these days?) said the man was lucky not to have been more seriously injured.

    No charges will be filed - for there are no laws in New Zealand which deter dogs from using firearms.

    It actually happens more frequently than you would think. It's usually bird hunters whose bird dog shoots them with a shotgun. I've heard of this happening several times.

    Having dogs is a whole lot like having young kids. Perpetual toddlers, if you will.


    I'm kinda curious as to why they brought the dog with them to butcher a domestic hog. It's not like he was needed as a hunting dog, so it seems like he would just be in the way (or worse, as it was)

    That dog definately has some explaining to do. I bet the owner goes back to feeding him dry dog food. Should have had a dog like mine, reading the book, "Gun Dog." (avatar) This may have been avoided.

    The guy should have had his dog watch the NRA's "Eddie Barker" video...

    I'm more curious as to why they left a loaded, chambered, and unsafed rifle lying on the ground to be stepped on...
