Jerry Bradford, a 37 year old man living in the Pensacola, Florida area has been shot in the wrist.

By a dog.

Actually, a puppy.

Bradford had decided to shoot seven 3-month-old puppies in the head because he could not find a home for them. As he was holding two of the puppies, one of them managed to wiggle his way to the trigger of the .38 caliber revolver Bradford was holding, causing it to discharge.

Sheriff’s deputies found three of the puppies in a shallow grave but the other four, including the hero, were taken by Escambia County Animal Control. They appeared to be in good health.

Charges against Bradford are pending.

I suspect the puppy pulling the trigger will not be charged. After all, it was self defense.
