Allie Carter, a twenty-five-year-old hunter of Avilla, Indiana, was injured in an accident that if not true would otherwise defy explanation.
On October 24, she was hunting waterfowl at the Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area in Kosciusko County near Syracuse IN. Accompanying her was her 10-year-old chocolate Labrador dog. The incident occured approximately 150 miles from the state capital, Indianapolis.
When Carter repositioned herself during the hunt, she placed her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground near her feet. It was then at approximately 10 a.m. local time that the Indiana Department of Natural Resources received a report of a person who had received a firearms injury.
According to the Indiana DNR, it was Carter's dog that inadvertently stepped on the shotgun's trigger. Carter had broken a basic rule of firearms use by not engaging the safety on her shotgun. She had not ever taken a hunter safety class. With injuries to her left foot and toes, Carter was treated at a local hospital and released.
Ironically, Carter's faithful dog bears the name "Trigger." The DNR reminds hunters to practice safety.
