A Florida man is currently recovering after his pet dog shot him with his 9 mm handgun!Police however, said they are not going to prosecute the dog, as the shooting was accidental.
According to reports, 35-year-old Gregory Dale Lanier of Highlands County was driving his truck with his pet pooch on Saturday when the dog kicked a 9mm handgun lying on the floor of the truck, discharging a single bullet in the process.
Gregory told police he thought the gun was not loaded, but he immediately learnt it was the other way round when he ‘heard “boom”, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg.’ He was not seriously injured.
Police has ruled the dog, name Fido, shot him by accident and so no prosecution, adding that they have never seen a case like this before.
