So basically some poor fecker in Northland got shot in the butt by his dog.
(That can happen).
Mr-I-Got-Shot-In-The-Arse had been out pig hunting with a team of friends. After a successful day of slaughtering, they were all climbing into the 4wd to go home. Rover jumped into the backseat to cosy up to his mate and, apparently, had the misfortune to land on the trigger of the loaded .22 rifle.
Which promptly fired itself into said owner's arse.
Paramedics reported that the man was not bleeding too badly but was in extreme pain.
I'm picking Rover isn't going to get a Christmas present this year.
