Huff Post – Man’s best friend apparently was feeling a little less friendly this weekend, according to police in Highlands County, Fla.
Highlands Today reports that Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, was shot by his dog while traveling in his truck Sunday.
According Highlands Today, Lanier told authorities that he didn’t realize his .380 pistol was loaded, until his dog kicked the weapon, firing a round into Lanier’s leg. “Lanier said he heard boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg,” Sebring Police Commander Steve Carr explained.
Police have ruled the shooting accidental and did not detain the dog for questioning. No word on whether Lanier gave him a treat when they returned home, however.
As chance would have it, a similar dog-shoots-master situation occurred in Florida in December 2011.
Its about time canines start getting a little bit of revenge against humans. I got a story about a week ago from STL about a teen who shot a pit bull who had entered his yard. Shooting him is bad enough, but he didn’t shoot him with a .380, no, he should him with a bow and arrow. Then he posted the photo to Facebook because he thought he was a badass or something. Buzzfeed got a hold of it and so on and so on. It eventually became big news. So, no, I have no remorse for this dude. Not his fault, mostly the psycho bow and arrow shooter’s fault. Unfortunately no dog has shot him yet so I have to live my enjoyment through this case. I don’t apologize for that either.
First side not: You know this dude did something to piss off this dog. No way he was just pawing all over the gun without knowing exactly what it does and would do. Dogs are smart as fuck, people. They fetch shit, talk, can let you know when they have to use the bathroom, and they take orders. Seeing how to operate a gun and then re-enacting such activity would be the least of their problems.
Second side note: As smart as a dog is, how dumb does a human have to be to get shot by one? And this isn’t even the first occurrence in Florida. Can’t say that surprises me though. Floridians aren’t exactly nobel scholars. They’re either old as fuck and have dementia, or they’re redneck as shit which is like retarded dementia. Either way, they’re dumb as shit.
Here’s that Pit Bull story I was talking about..
Kind of hope this dog would’ve saved his bullets and hustled on over to Tahlequah, Oklahoma to revenge his buddy’s death on Caisen. Some real life dog eat, dog world.
