A man, Joseph Austin Smith, in Kansas tragically died after his dog fatally shot him in the back while on a hunting trip

A man in Kansas tragically died after his dog fatally shot him in the back while on a hunting trip. Officials say the freak hunting accident occurred over the weekend as 30 year old Joseph Austin Smith took his dog on a hunting trip.

Smith, who is originally from Wichita, was killed in his car after his dog stepped on his rifle, causing the firearm to discharge and fire a round into his back. Officials with the Sumner County Sheriff's Office say the incident occurred around 9:40 a.m. on Saturday (January 21) in the 1600 block of 80th Street, in the north-northeast area of Geuda Springs. The sheriff’s office said that upon arrival, they found the man sitting in the front passenger seat of his pickup truck, and was dressed in hunting gear. They started to administer CPR immediately, but he was shortly pronounced dead at the scene.
