Man's Best Friend Shoots Man in Back

A Memphis, Tennessee area man is recovering Wednesday after his dog shot him in the back.

King George is apparently a rather excitable 150 pound great dane.

And true to form witness to last night's incident says when visitors came over George the dog began enthusiastically wagging his rather large tail. That fast moving tail knocked a .22 caliber handgun off a nearby end table, accidentally shooting the dog's owner.

Police call it a bizarre situation.

The 21-year old man is expected to recover.

King George won't face any charges.
