In the butt!
A man and his friend were out duck hunting over the weekend.
They had their canoe in a shallow marshy area when the man got out of the boat to go set up some decoys.
He laid his 12-gauge shotgun across the bow of his boat when he got out.
A dog that would retrieve any ducks they shot was in the boat with them, and he jumped up on the bow of the canoe and stepped on the shotgun.
The gun fired and shot the guy right in the butt!!
From only ten feet away!
After being taken to a hospital, the man had 27 pellets of birdshot removed from his booty.
A local sheriff said:
“[The dog] did something to make the gun discharge. I don’t know if the safety device was on. It’s not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety.”
Because the man was wearing thick rubber waders he probably wasn’t injured as severely as he could have been.
We think he’s lucky to be alive.
And because he’s alive and well we don’t feel so bad smirking at his misfortune!
