Ex-LSU lineman shot by dog in Mississippi has leg amputated

Branch expected to recover after leg amputation

VICKSBURG, Miss. — A former Louisiana State University lineman was shot while duck hunting in Mississippi and lost his leg, according to his friend, who says the dog did it.

Micah Heckford tells The Clarion Ledger that he and several others were on a duck hunting trip near Eagle Lake when Matt Branch was accidentally hit by a blast from his shotgun, which he had left loaded in the bed of his pickup truck.

Heckford says a Labrador named Tito then jumped onto the truck bed, "stepped on the safety of Branch's shotgun and pulled the trigger." He says the 12-gauge shotgun shell fired through the side of the truck and hit Branch's left thigh. He says Branch has since had the leg amputated and is expected to recover.

I'd be interested in seeing a re-enactment. With blanks of course.

Dog hit the safety and then pulled the trigger ?

More like “Drunk idiot tossed loaded gun into pickup where it goes off. Then blames innocent Labrador.”

“The Black Dog did it ! A gang thing !”

Also, letting a dog ride in the back of a truck is stupid. Lots of dumbassery here.

If you have two dogs and a single cab pickup, it can be easier to have them ride in the bed with proper safety equipment, like a truck bed leash.

The only way to stop a bad dog with a gun is a good dog with a gun.

Or a spray bottle of citronella-water. They don’t like that. Bad dog! Bad dog!

However unlikely, it would be entirely possible with a Remington 870 or 1100 laid down on the left side.

Or another model with the safety neglected.

And however it happened, it was obviously and absolutely a human failing.

A Lab shooting someone. Really.

Now a Doberman, sure.

At least the dog came to no harm, so all's well.

I bet if you dig, you'll find that the dog has a rap sheet going back to "eating homework."
