Sebring, Florida -- A Highlands County man is recovering after police say he was shot by an unlikely suspect: his pet dog.
35-year-old Gregory Dale Lanier was driving with his pet pooch on Saturday when the dog kicked a .380 pistol that was on the truck's floor.
Lanier thought the gun was unloaded, but quickly learned otherwise after hearing a "boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg," Highlands Today reports.
The gun had discharged, firing a single round into Lanier's leg. He was not seriously injured.
No attempted murder charges are expected for Fido; police have ruled the shooting accidental. Sebring Police Commander Steve Carr says he never heard of a case like this before.
