Iowa Hunter Shot By Dogs

A Tama, Iowa man is recovering after being shot when hunting dogs stepped on his gun Saturday afternoon.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources reports 37-year-old James Harris was pheasant hunting north of Grinnell when someone in his group shot a bird.

When Harris went to retrieve it, he put his gun on the ground and as he crossed a fence, hunting dogs stepped on the gun, causing it to fire.

Harris was struck in the lower left leg and was treated at Grinnell Medical Center before being transferred by helicopter to University Hospitals in Iowa City.
