One of the first things that journalism students learn is to avoid news of the dog-bites-man variety. There is nothing new about that. Man bites dog, now that would be a story.
But what about dog shoots man?
The story from Salt Lake Tribune:
“One of the hunters was inside the boat with the dog, and the other hunter was in the water,” Potter said. “The guy in the water had put his 12-gauge shotgun across the bow of their boat.”
It turned out to be a doggone recipe for a painful end to the day’s outing.
“The dog got excited, was jumping around inside the boat and then it jumped on the gun. It went off, shooting the [decoy setter] in the buttocks,” Potter said.
