The owner has been treated for her injuries.

A WOMAN IN the US state of Indiana is recovering after being shot by her dog.

The dog is named Trigger.

The Associated Press quotes Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd as saying 25-year-old Allie Carter of Avilla laid her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety on during a waterfowl hunt on Saturday at Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area, around 140 miles south of Indianapolis.

Boyd says Carter’s chocolate Labrador retriever, Trigger, stepped on top of the shotgun and pulled the trigger.

He says Carter was shot in the left foot at point-blank range, suffering injuries to her foot and toes.

She was treated at two hospitals and released.
