Dogs Shoot Owners

Olney, Tex. — (U.P.) — Dogs around here apparently have become shotgun happy. Two owners were shot in one month by their dogs.

Jack Bishop, a farmer, was entering his car to go hunting when his collie jumped in and tripped the trigger. Bishop was sprayed with buckshot.

John Schlittler was wounded when his dog stuck an inquisitive paw into the trigger guard of a shotgun lying on a chair.
