A Brigham City, Utah man was spending an enjoyable day duck hunting with his friend, and his faithful companion his dog. He got out of the boat to move some decoys. Luckily he was wearing waders. He left his 12-gauge shotgun in the bow of the boat and his dog stepped on the firearm, firing a shot, hitting the man right in the rear. He suffered minor injuries, 27 pellets of bird shot from about 10 feet away. It is unsure whether the safety was on or not. From Startribune.com .
