Saudi Man Hunting Dogs Kills Himself
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Monday, January 06, 2014

Posted on 01/06/2014 3:54:06 PM PST by nickcarraway

A Saudi man accidentally killed himself as he pulled his gun to shoot at stray dogs passing near his house in the Gulf Kingdom.

The man was in his car when a herd of barking dogs ran past his house in the southern Saudi town of Baha, according to Sabq daily.

“He crawled out of his car’s window and wanted to climb to the roof of the vehicle when his gun accidentally fired…the bullet hit him under the chin and penetrated his skull,” the paper said, quoting police spokesman Lt Colonel Saad Tirad.

...the bullet hit him under the chin and penetrated his skull...

Apparently it struck a vital area as well. The article doesn't say.

How did you ever get him to sit still?

Mine is 4-1/2 years old and, I swear to you, he has ADHD!

He kills and eats little animals and birds that get into our backyard and he is one Hell of a watchdog. The watchdog part is OK but we have six cats who actually liked dogs before we got him as a puppy. He has terrorized those old cats.

First time I have ever heard of a “herd of dogs”, is a herd bigger than a pack?

Goldens appear to have somewhat variable temperments.

I had one who was a terrible watchdog, pretty good around cats, great around kids, but had a dominance problem with other dogs and didn’t like porcupines (only twice, though).

Somewhere between a gaggle and flock, apparently.

I believe a pack is when they’re roaming around neighborhoods and such, while a herd is typically indicative of the wild dogs found grazing across the vast prairies of Saudi Arabia and barking toward Mecca 5 times a day. But I’m no veterinarian so I could be mistaken. {grins}

What breed is he?

Some breeds were made for working, and if you don’t exercise them enough to exhaust them, they will be hyper all day long.

Probably his tongue. If he'd lived he'd spend the rest of his life saying AWAH AKBAW!!

The real tragedy is, he didn’t previously teach gun safety to a few hundred other Saudis.

Dittos to that. Would have been nice if the doggies went over and raised a leg and watered down the muzzie stiff and then barked out a few ‘allah ackbars’ also.

Probably had a hair trigger and bumped the gun on something dragging out! My guess an AK 47 with a hair trigger! Pulled it out barrel first.

He’s a Golden Retriever, and I researched the breed extensively. Cookey’s parents were very nice dogs and neither came from field dog lines.

Our previous dog was an English Pointer who had gone mad and had to be euthanized. I really loved that dog, so his descent into madness was heartbreaking.

My field-bred English Springer bitch, Mickey, is a sweety. She is very birdy but has a rear leg with a slipping kneecap, a minor problem, not worth correcting medically. Plus she is terrified of gunfire.

Our backyard is roomy enough that the dogs get plenty of exercise but I can’t take them for walks. Cookey is too hyper for that unless it is a miles long walk. I have arthritis in my hips now, so that is out of the question.

Well, probably it’s just youthful exuberance then, and not much you can do about that. Unless you want to get him a prescription for doggie-ritalin :)
