37-year-old Jerry Bradford, of Pensacola, Florida couldn't find homes for his 3-month-old shepherd-mix puppies. So he decided the best course of action was to kill the seven puppies by shooting them in the head.
Bradford was holding two of the puppies, one in his arms the other in his left hand, when one of the dogs put its paw on the trigger of the .38-caliber handgun Bradford was using.
The gun discharged and Bradford was shot in the wrist. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Police found three dead puppies and four others in good health. They were taken to a local animal adoption center.
Bradford faces charges of animal cruelty.
