Dog shoots owner in Florida
Pup kicked loaded gun on floor, shooting man in leg
A Florida man was shot and wounded by his dog, who's walked away without charges.
Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Frostproof, Fla., and his dog were in his truck Saturday when his dog kicked a loaded gun on the floor, shooting him in the leg, the Highlands Today newspaper reported.
Lanier told authorities he didn't know his .380 pistol was loaded.
Sebring police have ruled the shooting accidental, and Lanier was not seriously injured, according to the Highlands Today.
In December 2011, 78-year-old Billy E. Brown was shot in the thigh by his dog as he drove to a deer hunting spot in Pasco County, according to The Huffington Post.
And this past September, a hunter in France had to have has right hand amputated after his dog shot his gun while apparently attempting to "cuddle" his master, BBC News reported.
