Doggone Foot 
1999 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

Disqualified by Darwin January 2007: "Poetic justice, but not funny. Fortunately no animals were injured."

(7 November 1999, Florida) A Port St. John resident was never what neighbors would describe as friendly, so they greeted news of his recent foot wound with amusement on Sunday. The man had been standing in his front yard and aiming his gun at a neighbor's dog with malevolent intent. But his markmanship proved lacking that day. When he squeezed the trigger, he hit his own foot instead of the mutt and wound up suffering in the hospital for his transgressions against man's best friend. Reference: Florida Today © 1994 - 2012
