Florida man shot by his dog, police say
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 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.
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.
Sooo.....let me get this straight, the dog hasn't been charged, YET, because the investigation is pending. Hmm...ok.
Now this one has me scratching my head. The guy shot was "surprised" that he was shot by a 9mm weapon and not a .380. It is HIS gun, but he has no clue what type of gun it is?
My favorite part of this story: this is only the latest in a string of bizarre shootings in Florida. Wow.
This is bizarre and completely unusual, and this is coming for a girl who thinks she's a stormtrooper.
