Default Bad dog or Bad Hunter ?

HOUSTON— A tracking dog apparently stepped on a loaded shotgun in the bed of his owner's pickup truck, firing a fatal blast into the man's thigh during a goose hunt, officials said.[/b]

Perry Alvin Price III died Saturday at a hospital from severe blood loss from his femoral artery shortly after the freak accident in southeast Texas.

Price's sister, Patricia Payne, said her brother was always very careful while hunting.
"His dog was so excited," she said. "He was jumping all around, because he was about to get out and go get that goose.

"That gun had to be knocked around just right to fire. I believe the dog knocked the safety off and hit the trigger, too," she said.

what does your individual state regulations say about this ?

Our state allows loaded guns in vehicles. It was a dumb move to place a loaded shotgun where a dog could trample on it. You can't regulate dumb mistakes. It was already a violation of the rules of gun safety and common sense.

This is the second incedent in about a year that I've heard of with a dog shooting someone due to careless gun handling.

Another thing I find amusing is the term 'tracking dog' in relation to goose hunting. The geese we have here don't leave much for tracks when they fly by.

Sorry to hear of such an unnecessary death. Don't drive around with loaded weapons.

It's Bush's fault.

The gun shouldn't have been loaded. [:'(]

It was obviously one of those, "Oh , that could never happen" type of accidents. A good reminder to all of us to practice strict firearms safety while hunting, at the range or just cleaning guns.

All in all though, I still blame Halliburton.

NO gun should ever be chambered in a vehicle period!!!! Safety comes first always.......
