Dog Wiggles Paw Free to Shoot Florida Man

Associated Press

PENSACOLA, Fla. - 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.

Oh God!!

More fuel for Bywarren and his support of "the gun lobby" - now, he will no doubt actively campaign for the use of tanks and RPG'S against our furry friends.

Well, dare we say another case of the 'criminal' being taken, err wounded, by his own weapon.

by - if more cases of the gun totin' bugger being shot by his/her own gun would surface, maybe just maybe these dudes will come around.

So if, after finding that nobody wanted these puppies, he had done the right thing and taken them to the city's animal control, what would animal control have done to those poor little puppies after they couldn't find anybody to adopt them? Should animal control then be charged with animal cruelty as well? A quick bullet to the head is no more cruel than what animal control would have done to them. In fact it's probably less cruel because they wouldn't have to spend a week scared sh*tless, in a tiny cage first.

Just a little food for thought.

Actually, the puppies would have been adopted out. The different SPCA units transfer animals that have been under their care. They give them a few weeks and then move them to a different location.

This however is not to belittle your point. I agree with you. BUT, what is the alternative? I think injecting animals is, to use the terms, more humane than sticking a gun to their small, lovable faces and pulling the trigger.

BTW, I do not buy this guys story that he couldn't find a home for the animal.

The only fault I find with this story is that I would have wished the puppy had better aim. eek

Yeh, Denny - I was thinking the same thing. Too bad the guy wasn't wounded a bit more seriously.

All right, I have to admit this puppy did not graduate at the top of my class in markmanship. I am considering putting up a picture of Pedro instead of a bulls eye to hopefully instill more motivation to excell in the aiming skills. laugh

Re: Man shot by puppy - 09/10/04 07:51 PM

The SPCA in my home town is quite often over crowded. Sometimes they find a new home for the critters...sometimes they don't. If they can't, or they have no facilities to cope with the overflow, the overflow are sent to the pound and euthanized after 3 to 4 days or so....at least that's what the SPCA told me. However, in this case, you are probably right. The puppies... or at least some of them, would have had a better chance with the SPCA. There would be a better than 0% chance that the SPCA would have had room for some if not all of the puppies. Puppies, especially if they are cute, stand a better chance of being adopted than older dogs. Their chance with the shooter was close to 0% (it would would have been 0% if the guy wasn't stupid enough to let a dog shoot him) so, in that regard, you are probably correct about the SPCA scenario....but felony charges?...

Call animal control! We have an escaped goat on our hands!

Get it?!.. escaped goat?!.... Get it?!.....wow! tough crowd!...

Thank you! Thank you! I'll be here all week!

Zagnut, All week?.... please don't stay on our account.

Just kidding, you have some good material there.

Jerry Seinfeld got his start that way.

I can see it now, The Zagnut Show, Live from New York.
