Dog Shoots Owner, Unlikely to Face Criminal Charges

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Gregory Dale Lanier - a 35-year old resident of Frostproof, Florida - was hit in the leg by a bullet on Saturday in one of the year's most unusual shootings.

Because the shot was fired by his dog.

Dog, Gun

According to The Highlands Today, Lanier and his canine were driving in a truck when the dog accidentally kicked a .380 pistol that was lying on the ground.

It fired once and struck its owner in the lower extremity.

Authorities have ruled that the shooting was accidental and the Lanier's injury was not serious.

But while it's easy to laugh at this incident, it's far too common of an occurrance for weapons to simply be lying around. Recent case in far more tragic point:

Marquiez Deshon Pratt was arrested this week after his four-year old found a gun nearby his napping father and died of a self-inflicted wound.
