While hunting in the Dordogne region of France with his his three blue Gascony basset hounds, a man only known as Rene, had his hand shot off when his youngest dog jumped into his lap, and his gun went off.
“He jumped on top of me for a cuddle” and accidentally fired the gun, shooting him in the right hand, Rene said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, according to Outdoor Hub.
They rushed Rene to the hospital, but they were unable to save his right hand.
“It wasn’t the dog’s fault,” Rene insisted. “And he’s adorable! I should have left the (gun’s) safety on, that’s all.” –Brian McClintock
