Dog Shoots Man: Hunter’s Hand Is Amputated


A French hunter has told how he had to have his hand amputated after his “adorable” dog accidentally shot him.

The 55-year-old man, named only as Rene, said the animal accidentally pulled the trigger of his master’s shotgun after jumping on top of him “for a cuddle”.

The shot destroyed his right hand and he had to be taken by helicopter to a hospital in Bordeaux, where doctors were unable to save the limb.

Rene, who was hunting with three Blue Gascony Basset hounds in St Michel de Double, in the southwestern Dordogne region, told France Bleu radio he did not blame the animal.

“It wasn’t the dog’s fault,” he said. “And he’s adorable! I should have left the (gun’s) safety on, that’s all.”

  1. So round chambered, hammer cocked, AND safety off, and his weapon not securely pointed at the thing he intended to destroy/kill as soon as he steadied his aim…

    Stupidity costs dearly.

    At least he’s not trying to blame anyone but himself.

  2. Always remember to reward your pups when they do good out in the field or this will happen.
