Ex-LSU player shot in leg... by a dog
One from the "only in the South" files...

"A former LSU offensive lineman had his leg amputated after he was shot in a hunting accident.

And in an unbelievable twist, it was a dog who apparently pulled the trigger. Yes, really.

According to The Clarion Ledger, Matt Branch, who played for LSU from 2008-11, was with a group of friends duck hunting in Mississippi on Dec. 28 when a Labrador retriever named Tito jumped into the bed of an off-road vehicle and stepped on Branch’s shotgun, firing a shot.

The bullet hit Branch in the left thigh. The group realized quickly he was seriously injured."

So he had a loaded shotgun sitting in the rack of an ATV with the safety off. Good lord.

The safety was on but the dog jumped on the bed of the truck and somehow turn the safety off and pulled the trigger that got shot in the bed of the truck into the players leg.

The ultimate irony. Going out to shoot harmless animals for sport. Get shot by a harmless animal and loses his leg

The bullet


Sad event, but what type of shotgun shoots bullets?

It was probably shot shells (pellets), but have you ever heard of slugs?
