A farmer from Evershot, Dorset, shot hinself in his right buttock in a freak accident.
“I leant the shotgun against a fence post as I went to attend to the target I was practicing with“. “The gun must have fell and went off” he told The Dorset Fudge.
Several rabbits were spotted in the area of the shotgun; though no link has been established between them and the gun going off.
The farmer is making a good recovery sitting on the left.
