Man’s best friend eh? I DON’T THINK SO. Click here for the tail [sic ’em] of the Utah labrador that almost blasted his owner to kindgom come. And clock this canine conspiracy from today’s tampabay.com. “Billy E. Brown (above), general manager and executive vice president of the Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative, two friends and a bulldog set out before dawn to hunt deer . . . Brown and one of the other hunters were traveling down a bumpy, rocky road in a pickup truck to their hunting stands when Brown’s dog got excited and bumped a high-powered Browning .308-caliber rifle, authorities said. The bullet struck Brown in the right thigh. The dog, named Eli, was between Brown and a passenger, but it was not immediately clear how the rifles were positioned or if the safety was engaged.” Or who (or what) may have disengaged it . . .
