    Dog shoots owner in arm

    A ranch dog in Sheridan, Wyoming, has shot his owner, 46 -year-old Richard Fipps, in the arm. However, in the dog's defence, I think it's worth mentioning Fipps had ordered the dog into the backseat, where a gun was laying...with the safety catch off.

    Landowner Fipps and two employees had left the vehicle to help another that was stuck in mud. No charges will be made, police say. The fate of the dog isn't mentioned in the article, sadly.

    The injury is not life threatening, but Fipps may lose his arm. Witnesses statements support the claim the shooting was accidental. It was a Winchester Magnum rifle, if that means anything to anyone.

    I hope nothing happens to the dog, it's 100% Fipp's fault.

    I looked .300 Winchester Magnum rifles up on the internet. They are a big gun, and it would have done a bit of damage.
    I hope nothing happens to the poor dog, I agree with PrimeSuspect it was 100% Fipp's fault (the safety catch should have been on).

    That's a gun for BIG game. My dog is smart, alerts on medical with me, can almost spell! But even he couldn't be taught to turn the safety catch on. I even taught one of my GSD's to answer the phone. But this is totally the mans fault. Praying for poor doggy.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Beware of dog. He won't bite the hand that feeds him, but he will shoot your arm off.

    I do hope the man won't lose his arm.
