These thing happen on occasion.
Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Frostproof, Fla., told police Saturday that he and his dog were in their truck in nearby Sebring when the dog kicked a gun that was on the truck’s floor, the Highlands Tribune newspaper reported.
The gun went off, shooting Lanier in the leg, Sebring police said.
Lanier wasn’t seriously injured, said Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr, who actually said police didn’t arrest the dog because the investigation was pending, the Tribune reported.
Luckily the man was not fatally wounded.
What is it with dogs and them hurting their owners in Florida? A while back we also covered a story about a dog which accidentally killed its owner when it jumped in the car and pushed the accelerator. There are such things as “safeties” on guns and maybe NOT have your dog jumping around. Just saying…a little caution, folks, around the gunz.
