Hunter accidentally shot dead by own dog in freak accident


A new dad tragically died after he was accidentally shot by his own dog during a hunting excursion in Turkey over Thanksgiving weekend.

The freak accident occurred while Ozgur Gevrekoglu, 32, was pursuing game with his pals on the Kizlan Plateau in Samsun Province last weekend, Newsflash reported.

While the expedition went off without a hitch, disaster struck while the big game hunter was packing up to leave.

Gevrekoglu was reportedly putting his pet dog in the trunk of the car, when its paw inadvertently touched the trigger of the still-loaded shotgun, causing the weapon to discharge into the hunter at close range.

The dog-lover was subsequently rushed to Alacam State Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

It's yet unclear which dog was responsible for Gevrekoglu's death. He appeared in photos with many pooches, including this recent one from social media.

His body was then transferred to the state capital of Samsun for an autopsy while an investigating is currently underway into the details surrounding the man’s death, which occurred just ten days after he had become a father.

It’s yet unclear which pup was responsible for the fatal misfire. Gevrekoglu posted photos of himself with several hounds, including a recent one where the smiling outdoorsman was holding up a string of dead birds with one hand and petting a dog with the other.

Interestingly, some Turkish media outlets suspected that the hunter was a victim of murder and that the dog was simply the scapegoat.

Interestingly, some Turkish media outlets claim that Gevrekoglu was actually murdered and the dog excuse was simply a coverup, Newsflash reported. However, as of yet, investigators haven’t found any evidence of foul play.

In a similar fiasco in 2018, a New Mexico man was accidentally shot in the back by his dog while on a jack rabbit hunt.
