Dog suspected in Tillamook Bay shooting
By Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Tillamook man sustained a leg injury when his 12-gauge shotgun accidentally discharged during a duck-hunting trip on Tillamook Bay.
The Oregon State Police says the man’s dog is the prime suspect.
Sgt. Todd Hoodenpyl says 23-year-old Matthew Markum and his younger brother were using an aluminum boat to go from land to their decoys Saturday morning. When the men left the boat, a shotgun blast put a hole in the side of the boat before striking Markum’s leg.
Hoodenpyl says the yellow Labrador had been on the boat and may have touched the gun.
An ambulance took the injured hunter to a local hospital. He was later transferred to a Portland’s Legacy Emanuel Hospital.
The extent of Markum’s injury has not been released.
Suuuure, blame the dog. He also drank all your Jim Beam.
