Dog Shoots Owner with Shotgun in Minnesota

Man's best friend?

Or man's most dangerous friend?!?

A 19-year old man was shot this week when hunting birds in Minneosta, with authorities confirming his dog was actually the one who pulled the trigger. By accident... we assume!

The puppy reportedly jumped on to his owner's shotgun inside a boat and his paw hit the trigger, causing a cartridge to blast into the victim's leg.

The Star Tribune describes the man's injuries as non-life-threatening, but should this incident be cause for concern across the pet kingdom.

In February, another man was shot by his dog in Florida, making us wonder if canines are trying to send a message. Perhaps they want more Kibbles than Bits? Be careful out there, owners.
