    Dog fires gun

    Has anyone heard a situation like this described before.

    Dog accidentally fires gun

    A police dog was pawing through the snow where someone had stashed an unholstered gun and is thought to have hit the trigger and fired a round into an adjacent home. No one was hurt.

    Does the ND credit go to the citizen who placed the gun in the snow and carefully covered it? The dog? The officer who sent the dog into the snow without teaching the dog to keep her paws off of the trigger?

    Gotta wonder about the gun. Something smells a little about this story, but I can't put my finger on it yet. Could it have happened? Yep, absolutely. But I want to know the make of the gun first before I completely buy it. I don't know.

    I call BULL .... on this one. Either it's pure bull, or it's one stupid trainer, handler, or dog. The DOGS are not taught to "paw" at anything when they find it...... they are taught to "alert" .... period .... letting the handler know that something is there. Some idiot is blaming his dog, for his ND. Chances are "he" began digging into the snow to find the gun that the dog alerted on, and caused the ND.

    Re: Dog fires gun

    I also call b.s. police dogs passivly alert by sitting down or some other action. Pawing could move and effect evidence (and aparently make guns go off)

    I have the same opinion on search dogs digging when they find their target unless he was ordered to dig by his handler. If that's so then I'll wager that the handler will never give that order again, lol.

    C'mon everyone, this is clearly a case of the evil gun firing itself and then trying to blame the poor dog. I know that guns are evil and thus capable of such heinous acts because Dianne Feinstein, Michael Bloomberg and a whole bunch of actors who once held a toy gun in a movie tell me they are.

    Any gunshot residue on the dogs paw? A simple inexpensive forensic test would resolve the issue.
