Deputies say a man in Pensacola who was trying to shoot seven puppies was shot himself by one of the dogs.
The man was holding two of the shepherd-mix puppies when one of
them wiggled and put its paw on the trigger of the .38-caliber revolver, making it discharge.
Escambia County, Florida, deputies say 37-year-old Jerry Allen Bradford was shot in the wrist and being treated at an undisclosed
hospital. He says he was shooting the 3-month-old pups because he
couldn't find another home for them.
Three of the puppies were found in a shallow grave behind his house, the other seven were taken by animal control, which intends for them to be adopted.
The sheriff's office issued an arrest warrant charging Bradford with felony animal cruelty.
