A man from the US state of Utah is recovering in hospital after being shot by a dog during a duck-hunting trip.
The 46-year-old, who has not been named, was shot in the buttocks near Brigham City.

Local sheriff Kevin Potter said the man was hunting in a canoe with his friend at the north end of the Great Salt Lake when the accident happened.

He had left the boat to place duck decoys, leaving his 12-gauge shotgun behind.

A dog travelling in the boat with the men jumped up and apparently stepped on the gun, which then fired off a shot that hit the victim some 10ft away.

Medical crews later removed 27 birdshot pellets from his buttocks, the sheriff revealed.

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

The hunter's waders prevented serious injury and the two men were able to walk to a nearby road to wait for emergency crews.
