Dog shoots man: film at 11!
Florida man shot by his dog, police say
By M. Alex Johnson, staff writer, NBC News
A Florida man was shot and wounded over the weekend by his dog, who walked away without charges, police said.
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.
He also said he had never heard of a similar case.
According to the police report, Lanier said he was driving along State Road 17 North when the dog kicked "the unloaded .380 pistol." It went on to say that Lanier was "surprised" to learn not only that the gun was loaded, but also that it was actually a 9mm weapon, not a .380.
The incident is only the latest in a string of bizarre shootings in Florida. Just last week, a woman in St. Petersburg was wounded when she was shot by a friend's oven.

WELL IF IT WENT OFF IT WAS LOADED THE DOG DIDNT LOAD IT . UNLESS THERE IS A BULLET HOLE GOING INTO THE CAB HE SCREWED UP. ONE MORE STUPID GUN OWNER MAKING OTHERS LOOK BAD
You shouldn't have put this on the forum. Now bummer will try to ban dogs.. Bye the bye, did the dog have a licence to control the pistol? (;-))
hmmmm not only loaded but it would have likely need to have been cocked an if it had a safety off.
it would take a strong dog tounge to cock a auto ,, chew maybe ????
some thing here don't add up unless the idiot was driving around with a loaded an cocked auto . he likely shot him self an blamed the dog ???????
too bad the dog wasn't a better shot. this guy sounds like an idiot.
