I seen this on the news last night. I dont Believe the dog knew to use the gun or intented to.
A man who tried to shoot seven puppies was shot himself when one of the dogs put its paw on the revolver's trigger.
Jerry Allen Bradford, 37, was charged with felony animal cruelty, the Escambia County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday. He was being treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to his wrist.
Bradford said he decided to shoot the 3-month-old shepherd-mix dogs in the head because he couldn't find them a home, according to the sheriff's office.

If the puppies had been at the local pound and had been unadopted for a set period (different municipalities have different lengths of time) they would have been "put to sleep".
At any rate, the man seems to have been injured by his own stupidity, because no one in his right mind would have been carring dogs with a cocked firearm in his hand.
Or are dogs some kind of protected class
