Dog Shoots Man With Unloaded Gun

Yes, you read that correctly.

1. Everything below is from a very real police report.

A Florida man told police last week that the bullet wound on his leg was actually from his dog.

According to the police report, Gregory Dale Lanier was driving on State Road 17 North when his dog kicked his “unloaded” .380 pistol, causing it to fire. He “heard a boom, saw smoke, and felt a burning feeling on his leg.”

Lanier told police he was surprised for two reasons: 1. He thought the gun was unloaded. 2. He also didn’t know the gun was a 9mm.

Police say that they did not arrest the dog.

3. Man’s best friend? Or worst nightmare? You decide!
