I'm amazed the pellets penetrated the tailgate. My sympathy to all involved. The poor dog probably misses his master too.

What a terrible accident, unfortunately it's too late to say the gun should have been unloaded.

This is sad , but that is why it is called an accident, he probably should have unloaded before setting the gun down.

That's why these kinds of things are called accidents. They do happen and everyone at one point in time in our lives has had something happen that you then look back on and say I could have prevented that. Luckily most are not fatal. I feel bad for the family and friends and wonder what happened to the dog. Some people would blame the dog.

Why would you have a loaded gun in the back of a truck with an animal that wasn't crated? This is pitiful that an educated man and a hunter would do such a thing. It is a shame that such carelessness cost him his life. I really feel for his family. I hope they have better sense than to blame the poor animal.

As a long time bird hunter, labrador retriever breeder, hunt test judge and gun dog trainer, it saddens me that people forget the basics of gun safety, especially when afield. The gun should have been unloaded and the breach opened if it was lying in the back of the truck.

When our dogs are in the field, they are thrilled, happy as can be and raring to go. Extra caution should always be taken in a situation like this.

My thoughts go out to his family.

A sad story, but it goes to show that nothing good can come from having a gun at your home. I hope the family is okay.

It is sad for the family and a truly tragic accident, but he set a loaded gun in the bed of his truck. The safety was most probably not off not on, and why was he out shooting geese. If we wasn't out killing living creatures, he would be alive today.

What a tragedy! The poor dog cannot be blamed, but this is a bizarre and unbelievable chain of circumstances. If the men had been closer to civilization, the wound probably would not have been fatal, as they could have called 911, and paramedics probably could have stopped the bleeding. Sad, sad story.
