    "I don't know if the safety device was on. It's not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety."

    (1) No way the safety was on (the guy's just embarrassed to admit that; the dog didn't take the safety off); (2) the guy violated the rule about walking to where the bore was pointing; and (3) that was really unlucky that the dog somehow pulled the trigger.

    How do we really know this was an accident??? What do we know about said dogs background??? Maybe it was payback for that trip to the Vet just to get a checkup in which this poor pooch returned from Beanless. Since he proved he could use the gun, maybe he was also hitting the hooch and was hungover and didn't want to get out the warm boat!!!!

    Let this serve as a warning to treat your best friend better.

    Sounds like payback to me, for all those cold morning dips. However I do believe a lab could press the safety off on my 870 Remington were the gun laying in the right apposition;it would be a simple straight push. Then a toe to the trigger would discharge the firearm.

    As Hunters, I'd bet most of us would agree,....

    "Those animals are a fair bit smarter than we tend to give them credit for,.....?"

    I'm with Stid, thinking there's probably more to that dog than just too much enthusiasim

    pretty merciful dog if you ask me, pellets to the buttocks,...

    I think the fact that he left a round IN THE CHAMBER then put himself in front of the muzzle explains much. Then add a dog clambering around a boat, stepping on the trigger, and BLAMM ! He is lucky only his a-s-s and his pride are injured.

    Keep the chamber empty until you are ready to shoot.

    Probably stems from its childhood. Perhaps the pup was weened prematurely and blames his owner.

    A friend in Washington said this was on the news and was at the Bear River Refuge. Apparently the guy was only 10' away. I can easily see how the dog's toe nail could have pushed the safety off. Like was mentioned above: Keep the chamber empty till it's show time. Simple. Who gives a flying F if you MIGHT miss a shot at a duck because you weren't hot 100% of the time? Being neutered by your own gun has a rather ugly sound to it.

    I think a more apt word would be "NUMBA-SS" for this instance....

    I'm with STID on this one...perhaps it was payback for the last time he took the dog in to get her anal glands expressed.

    I leave one in the chamber when I'm duck hunting. That's because THE GUN IS WITH ME!! Ducks are fast. Was he planning on running through the water to get his gun and hopefully a passing shot? Not happening. That's how you float your hat.

    Dogs can, and will, take the safety off. All in one step. Depends on the gun, though. If the safety is in the trigger guard, it's too easy. They step on the safety and put it to fire, then pull the trigger as they step. Only rookie waterfowlers (read: idiots) do that. Most people know about this possibility and don't leave guns where dogs will walk, period; much less, loaded.

    Here is the "victim's" post on his "accident" over on the Duck Hunters Refuge forum. Photos of the decoy that may have saved his life are also posted.

    At least it is steel shot... Good lesson to have reiterated and thankfully he didn't catch one in the stones! I caught a bunny a few years ago running out toward the limit of my shotguns effective range. Only lead shot we found in it was two 7 1/2 pellets in its scrotum. That is the one animal I have taken over the years that I truly felt bad for!

    Or an appropriate ring to it, depending on your perspective.

    This is a repeat of a story told in Ray Tremblay's book On Patrol which took place in either the 40s or 50s in Fairbanks. In that story a man had shot his retriever for disobedience, but later took the dog hunting and the dog got all excited in the back of the truck and shot his owner.
