Hound Shoots Hunter

ZAGREB (Reuters) - A veteran Croatian hunter was shot by his own hound while preparing to go off into the woods, a newspaper reported on Friday.
Spaso Ivosevic, a hunter in central Croatia since 1957, cleaned and loaded his double-barreled shotgun as usual on Wednesday, the Jutarnji List daily said.
Ivosevic briefly leaned the gun against a wall near his house when his 2-year-old dog Lero, chasing chickens through the yard, stormed past and tripped over the shotgun.
It hit the ground and fired, showering Ivosevic with pellets.
The hunter was treated for a fractured leg bone, while the fate of Lero was not known.
