Woman's Dog Teaches Her Important Lesson About Gun Safety

Allie Carter, 25, of Avilla Indiana went waterfowl hunting with her Labrador retriever on Saturday at the Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area.

Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd says Allie Carter laid her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety. Her dog, named Trigger, then stepped on top of the shotgun and depressed the trigger.

Carter was shot in the left foot at point-blank range. She was treated for injuries to her foot and toes. Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area is about 140 miles north of Indianapolis.

Hopefully, this unfortunate event has reminded her that gun safety is important. Also it should serve as a reminder to other hunters, don't leave guns by your four legged friends.
