I have two sheepdogs and I very much doubt that this was a "tragic accident". That's what he gets for buying the cheap food.Man killed in freak farm accident
A farmer has died after a sheepdog accidentally pinned him against a wall with a farm machine.
The man, named locally as Harry Emslie, 67, did not survive the freak accident at a farm at Clola near Peterhead in Aberdeenshire.
The Daily Record reported that the dog was in the cab of a telescopic loader machine while the engine was still running and the handbrake off.
The dog reportedly hit a button which caused the machine to jump forward and pin Mr Emslie against the wall.
Emergency services went to the scene following the incident at around 9am on Monday, but were not able to save the farmer.
Aberdeenshire councillor Albert Howie, a friend of Mr Emslie, said: "I've heard that the dog was in the telescopic loader and Harry had been out scraping up some rubbish with a hand shovel and putting it in the front of the loader.
"The dog had put forward the lever and the machine moved forward and pinned Harry against the wall. It's just a tragedy."
No, Shep! Nooooo!
