New Zealand dog shoots man in buttock with rifle

WELLINGTON -- A New Zealand man was shot in the backside by a dog that jumped onto a loaded rifle, a news report said Tuesday.

Police said they believe the dog accidentally stepped on the trigger of the .22-caliber rifle that was on the back seat in a car where the victim was sitting, the Northern Advocate newspaper reported.

The injured man, 40, was taken to hospital near Dargaville in Northland province on the North Island, where he was reported to be in extreme pain before a bullet was removed from his left buttock.
