A 46-year-old Utah man is recovering from injuries sustained when his dog shot him — yes, his dog — during a duck hunting trip, reports KSL.com

The Bringham City man took his small boat out with a friend around 8:30 a.m. Sunday on Great Salk Lake. He anchored the boat in a shallow marsh, where he got out, leaving behind his 12-gauge shotgun in the bow, said Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Kevin Potter.

That’s when his dog, still on the boat jumped up and stepped on the loaded gun, which discharged and shot the man in the buttocks.

The dog “did something to make the gun discharge,” Potter said. “I don’t know if the safety device was on. It’s not impossible the dog could have taken it off safety.”

Medical crews extracted almost 30 pellets from the man’s derriere.
