A hunting accident in the US has resulted in the death of a man after he was shot by a dog.
The accident happened in the state of Tennessee on Saturday when the man and his dog were out hunting. According to reports, the man was hunting with three other people when his dog, a black lab, shot a gun that was loaded with bird shot. The bird shot hit the man in the face, killing him instantly.
The man’s name has not yet been released and the incident is still under investigation.
The accidental shooting of a person by a dog is rare, but it does happen. In 2016, a man in Wisconsin was killed when his hunting partner’s dog stepped on the trigger of a shotgun that was loaded with buckshot. In 2018, a hunter in Florida was also killed when his dog stepped on the trigger of a rifle that was loaded with bullets.
It is unclear what caused the accident in Tennessee, but it is important to remember to always take proper precautions when hunting with dogs, such as keeping firearms unloaded and out of the reach of dogs.
