Dog Shoots Hunter

On the first day of pheasant season in Iowa, the pheasants and hunter James Harris wound up on the wrong end of the shotgun.

After his party shot a bird on Friday, Harris put his gun down and crossed a fence to retrieve it. That's when things went to the hunting dogs, who stepped on the weapon and bang!

Harris was hit in the lower left leg. He was treated at a nearby medical center and then airlifted to Iowa City.

Authorities are investigating. No word on whether the dogs have been interrogated.
