A 32-year-old Wichita, Kansas native was killed on Saturday, January 22, after his dog pulled the trigger while they were driving.
The Sumner County Sheriff’s office told local outlet KWCH that the hunter’s dog stepped on the rifle while it was in the back seat, causing it to discharge in the owner’s direction.
After cops arrived the scene of the incident at north of Geuda Springs, they found the man in the front seat. They started CPR immediately, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. It’s unclear if the animal was harmed at all in the process.
