It happened in Iowa - a dog has shot a man. Fortunately, the man was just wounded in the leg.
As with many hunting accidents, it involved climbing a fence.
The man put his loaded-and-ready shotgun down on the ground and started climbing the fence. The dog stepped on the shotgun's trigger.
If you must leave a loaded gun within reach of a dog,
Aim it away from your leg - try a post or a log.
