Man shot by his own dog in bizarre accident

35-year-old Gregory Lanier from Florida managed to get shot in the leg by his unsuspecting pet bulldog.

Lanier had been driving along the motorway with his faithful companion when the dog started jumping around inside the truck and knocked over a handgun that had been resting between the seats and that he had always assumed to be unloaded. The weapon went off, firing a round in to his leg and out through the door panel on the other side.

Fortunately despite his injuries Lanier was able to drive the truck to a petrol station and raise the alarm before being taken to hospital for treatment. The dog was unharmed during the incident and in the end no charges were filed.

"Gregory Lanier, 35, told officers he was driving down the motorway when his dog kicked what he thought was an unloaded handgun sitting on the raised floor section between the passenger and driver's seat of his pickup truck."

Hmm I might be clutching at straws here but why would you carry a hand gun between the seats for in the first place.

that's the guys fault.the dog is not to blame.why you may ask.okay ill tell you.1)animals get curious and play with everything they see and etc.2)the guy should have left it in a proper place in the 1st place.that's why you have gun cases and locks and you don't leave a gun loaded and especially in the open.3)animals are animals they don't know what a gun is!!!4)leave the dog alone guys and i hope the guy is truly okay honestly but its not the dogs fault,these dogs are very friendly and awesome and funny.my brother has one he makes me laugh and like spending time with him and etc.

This is why people shouldn't have guns lol but oh well, if the government decides to take away all guns then that just means the bad guys will have guns lol

1. Well one was a Bulldog, perhaps the other a Gator? Those rivalries can be brutal. 2. Would have suspected a hunting dog at the very least.... 3. And remember, guns don't kill people; dogs with guns kill people. Fortunately the dog was a bad shot.

Guns dont kill people, bulldogs with guns kill people... and if it was an assault bulldog, we simply must ban him.
