In Florida, even dogs have access to guns.
A man from Frostproof, Florida was driving his truck this week when his dog, probably tired of eating sub-par kibbles, shot him in the leg, according to the man's explanation, reported by Highlands Today. In fact, the dog only kicked a gun that had been lying on the floor but the weapon went off while aimed at the driver.

Gregory Dale Lanier was not seriously hurt but he did seem confused about almost everything. Apparently, Lanier didn't know the gun was loaded. He also told police it was a .380 pistol, when in fact the weapon was a 9mm.
Police did not arrest the dog pending an investigation, according to the story, which didn't mention that police probably aren't responsible for arresting gun-wielding dogs.
For now, there's no proof that Lanier didn't invent this version of events as a twisted sort of dog-ate-my-homework story, to cover up whatever actually happened.
Nonetheless, this story is going down in the books as another example that people do crazy things in Florida. For instance, a Palm Beach man who was arrested on Monday after he shot a bullet into the night sky to scare off a raccoon, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
