Scotland is a land of mysteries. Does Nessie exist? Do bagpipe players really go “commando” under their kilts? And are the forces of “cosmic justice” at work, protecting the country’s harassed, maimed, and hunted animals? That last one was recently answered: Sometimes.

Today’s installment of “Payback Is Hell” was made possible by hunters, a dog, and a gun. The Mirror reports that two Scottish hunters who were shooting geese were themselves left bloodied and injured after their dog stepped on an unattended shotgun. Unable to duck for cover, each man was shot in his leg; one also took a hit in his hand.

The lesson here is no mystery. Always choose to be kind, not cruel, to animals.
