Probably bribed by the birds…Or tired of being told to “fetch”.
Authorities say a northern Indiana woman is recovering after being shot in the foot by her dog.
And the dog’s name? Trigger.
Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd says 25-year-old Allie Carter of Avilla laid her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety on during a waterfowl hunt Saturday at Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area.
Boyd says Carter’s chocolate Labrador retriever, Trigger, stepped on top of the shotgun and depressed 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.
Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area is about 140 miles north of Indianapolis.
HIjacking a Garbage Truck?
A man stole a garbage truck Tuesday morning, then drove it around the neighborhood, hitting parked cars, Pronto bikes and eventually another garbage truck before being arrested.
A man driving a stolen garbage truck early Tuesday morning marauded through the Capitol Hill neighborhood, damaging cars, destroying a Pronto bike station and forcing the closure of several blocks of traffic.
Shortly before 6:40 a.m., the truck’s fuel tank was punctured during its rampage. Diesel fuel began leaking from the truck as it drove, covering several blocks until the driver hit another garbage truck. The stolen truck’s fuel tank ignited and flames could be seen spewing from its side. The fire was quickly extinguished.
Police arrested the suspect, and he was taken to the East Precinct.
Coincidentally, that’s where the heist had begun.
