Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Sebring, Fla., didn't know the gun resting on the floor of his truck was loaded until his dog accidentally (we can only assume) kicked it and it fired a bullet into Lanier's leg.
"Lanier said he heard boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg," Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said.
Police did not arrest the dog.
This isn't the first time a dog has fired a weapon at their owner. In 2011, a yellow Labrador from Utah jumped onto a 12-gauge shotgun and fired 27 pellets into his owner's buttocks.
