Only in Florida: Puppy Shoots Man Trying to Shoot it

There are certain places on earth where the normal laws of physics and biology don’t seem to apply to human society. The Bermuda Triangle, Area 51, the healing Grotto of Bernadette at Lourdes in France are all mythical places where bizarre happenings reportedly occur. If one were looking for solid scientific evidence of the occult though, the above would most likely fail given the lack of verifiable, repeatable evidence.

Luckily for those inclined towards sorcery and supernatural, the state of Florida presents enough verifiable, repeatable evidence that we indeed live in a world filled with wizardry and diabolism. In Florida, it is deemed perfectly normal for humans to eat each other’s faces, kiss deadly snakes for fun, and swim in deadly flesh eating bacteria ridden water. It is also a place where climate change apparently does not exist because it is ‘not a true fact‘ – further evidence that Floridians genuinely live in an agreed upon, alternate reality. Because where else in the world could a puppy shoot a grown man trying to shoot it? From NBC:

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 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.

At 3 months old, puppies are barely able to understand basic commands like ‘sit’ let alone shoot .38-caliber revolvers.

In Florida however, this apparently is not the case.
