Dog accidentally shoots his owner dead with a rifle

On Saturday, a 32-year-old hunter from Kansas was discovered deceased in his car. According to sheriffs, the cause of death was determined to be an accidental shooting that was caused by his dog stepping on the trigger of his rifle.

The man, originally from Wichita, was located in Geuda Springs- a small town situated 50 miles south of Wichita. He was found at approximately 9:40 am.

This is not the only shooting incident of its kind to take place in recent months. Back in November, a 32-year-old man in Turkey was allegedly shot and killed by his own dog when the animal inadvertently stepped on the trigger of a shotgun, causing it to fire at him.

It was reported that Ozgur Gevrekoglu tragically passed away while hunting in Kizlan Plateau, situated in the Samsun Province of Turkey. The unfortunate incident occurred when Gevrekoglu placed his dog in the car, and its paw touched the loaded gun.

As a result, the gun accidentally fired at him from a close range. Subsequently, Gevrekoglu was taken to the hospital for treatment. However, he was later declared dead from his gunshot injuries.

A few years ago, yet another dog owner faced a similar tragedy. In 2015, an Indiana woman named Allie Carter, 25, was shot in the foot by her Labrador Retriever, Trigger. The shooting took place while they were on a waterfowl hunt at Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area.

Indiana conservation officer Jonathon Boyd commented that Allie had left her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety on. The dog stepped on the trigger and fired it at point-blank range, causing injuries to Allie’s foot and toes. Fortunately, Allie was able to recover from her injuries.
