This wasn’t puppy love.
An Oklahoma woman was shot in the leg during a car ride — by an excitable puppy that jumped on a loaded gun, according to cops.
Tina Springer, 44, was hit in the left thigh after her driver’s yellow Labrador, Molly, jumped on a .22-caliber handgun in a folding center console, according to the Enid News & Eagle.
“I had a dog in there and he stepped on the gun,” driver Brent Parks, 79, told a 911 dispatcher. “The dog went stepped on it and it went off.”
“The dog shot her?” the surprised-sounding dispatcher asked, to which Parks replied, “Yeah. He stepped on it and it went off.”
Parks, who used his belt as a makeshift tourniquet, could be heard telling off his 7-month-old pet. “Well Molly, you’re the one who pulled that trigger. Don’t give me no s–t,” he “mutt”-ered at one point.
Parks said that Springer, his caretaker, was “bleeding pretty bad,” and she could be heard moaning in pain, crying, “I don’t feel good.”
Springer, who was shot while they waited at a train crossing last Thursday, was eventually taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Police said their statements matched evidence from the scene, and they do not suspect foul play. No charges are expected, according to the reports.
“This is the first time I’ve ever heard of a dog shooting a person,” Enid police Sgt. Robert Norton told KOCO.
Parks later showed off Molly to KFOR‘s TV cameras when they were back home. “There’s the killer dog. Well, you didn’t kill anybody …,” he said.
