    Puppy Shoots Man

    PUP SHOOTS MAN, SAVES LITTER MATES
    Thursday, September 9, 2004 Posted: 7:03 AM EDT (1103 GMT)
    PENSACOLA, Florida (AP) -- Nice shootin', Rex!

    A man who tried to shoot seven puppies was shot himself when one of the dogs put its paw on the revolver's trigger.

    Jerry Allen Bradford, 37, was charged with felony animal cruelty, the Escambia County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday. He was being treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to his wrist.

    Bradford said he decided to shoot the 3-month-old shepherd-mix dogs in the head because he couldn't find them a home, according to the sheriff's office.

    On Monday, Bradford was holding two puppies -- one in his arms and another in his left hand -- when the dog in his hand wiggled and put its paw on the trigger of the .38-caliber revolver. The gun then discharged, the sheriff's report said.

    Deputies found three of the puppies in a shallow grave outside Bradford's home, said sheriff's Sgt. Ted Roy.

    The other four appeared to be in good health and were taken by Escambia County Animal Control, which planned to make them available for adoption.

    I can't believe the best idea this moron could come up with was to shoot those puppies.

    Kind of poetic justice.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    Oh I don't believe that he was that stupid.... He was either LAZY as Hell, or took some sadistic pleasure in doing this to the puppies..... Either way, he is soul-less.
