HAS THE “ANIMAL FARM” REVOLUTION BEGUN? Some people are wondering after a hunting dog shot it’s owner on the opening day of pheasant season in Iowa Saturday.
James Harris was hunting with a group when one of them downed a pheasant. It fell on the other side of a fence and Harris went to retrieve it. Before climbing the fence he laid the gun on the ground, neglecting to engage the safety.
However the dogs followed him too closely, stepping on the gun’s trigger before he managed to get over the fence. About 100 to 120 pellets of birdshot hit him square in the left calf at a distance of just three feet.
He’s reported to be in satisfactory condition in the hospital, but he will be very uncomfortable for a long time. The dog was not injured.
