A pet dog has accidentally shot its owner with a pistol.
Gregory Dale Lanier, from the US town of Frostproof in central Florida, was driving his pickup truck on Saturday night when his dog accidentally kicked the .380 lying on the floor.
The gun went off and shot the 35-year-old in the leg.
"Lanier said he heard a boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg," a police spokesman told Highlands Today.
Mr Lanier, who was not seriously injured, told police he did not realise the gun was loaded.
The dog was not detained.
