A former LSU football player lost his leg last month after a dog shot him while they were hunting, reported. The accident took place in late December, near Eagle Lake in Mississippi.
Matt Branch, who played on LSU's football team from 2009 to 2011, suffered the injury while on a hunting outing December 28, along with a group of friends who made the trip annually. According to the account provided by a friend of Branch's, the dog was a Labrador retriever named Tito, a member of the hunting party.
The group of hunters were loading their weapons on the bed of a truck, when the dog walked over, stepped on the safety of Branch's shotgun and pulled the trigger. The shot struck Branch through the bed of the truck.
