Two Indiana hunters are recovering from wounds sustained when their dog knocked over a shotgun propped inside their hunting blind, causing the weapon to discharge.
Adam Daugherty, 30, and Jeremy Legge, 37, were shot in the ankles during their ill-fated waterfowl hunt Saturday outside Aurora.
Daugherty sustained the more serious wounds, according to the Journal Press.
Fox 59 reports that the men were standing outside the blind when the firearm discharged.
The 12-gauge shotgun, which was standing vertical inside the blind, did not have the safety engaged.
It was unclear what type of dog was involved.
The incident remains under investigation by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department.
