    ORTH WEBSTER, Ind. — Authorities say a northern Indiana woman is recovering after being shot in the foot by her dog.

    And the dog's name? Trigger.

    Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd says 25-year-old Allie Carter of Avilla laid her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety on during a waterfowl hunt Saturday at Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area.


    Boyd says Carter's chocolate Labrador retriever, Trigger, stepped on top of the shotgun and depressed the trigger.

    He says Carter was shot in the left foot at point-blank range, suffering injuries to her foot and toes. She was treated at two hospitals and released.

    Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area is about 140 miles north of Indianapolis.

    Yup, keep that safety on unless you're shooting. I know a Lab (by coincidence) who knocked over a loaded gun without the safety on and it hit a little boy and killed him. :( You know the first thing they try to do is get more gun control and that's not the answer...

    I don't understand gun control laws, I went off on a tangent and then deleted it. If you're with me you're with me and if you're against me you're against me so why waste the breath.

    Guns don't kill people. Dogs with guns kill people or at least shoot them.
    I bet that dog wouldn't even have passed the background check to get a gun.

    I hate politics, everyone argues their side but no one changes their mind, it's like a gerbil running on a wheel.
