A 37-year-old pheasant hunter was recently shot in the leg by his dog in Poweshiek County, Iowa. The Hunter set his gun on the ground to retrieve a fallen pheasant and the dog allegedly stepped on the trigger, sending 120 birdshot pellets into its master’s leg.
Even more alarming was a quote from Alan Foster, Iowa’s spokesman of Natural Resources, saying that this sort of animal attack is not uncommon. An investigation into the accident is under way, according to a report on BBC News. At least we can rest easy knowing the local law enforcement is investigating the case.
