This is not the first time that something like this has happened. Earlier this year in August, a dog accidentally shot his owner in the back. The dog got excited, and his tail knocked a loaded pistol off the table causing the gun to go off.
Now, there is another incident of a dog accidentally shooting an Oregon man.
The dog owner, Eddie Moss, was sitting in his pickup truck with a loaded rifle and his dog in the back. Another man, Darin Zyzniewski, came up to the truck and started talking to Moss.
The dog continued to step on the rifle which caused it to discharge through the driver door. Zyzniewski was struck in the left arm and was treated for his injury.
Authorities recommend to not have a loaded rifle inside a car, and to keep pets and children away from loaded guns.
