The 63-year-old woman had walked into her garden in the southern French town of Sorgues in the Vaucluse region, fired several test shots of a 22-calibre rifle and then turned the gun on her chest.
“At the moment she pulled the trigger, her dog jumped on her and diverted the shot,” a local police officer said, adding that the dog “probably sensed things and knocked into her to save her.”
The woman was found by her husband, conscious but suffering from a chest wound. She was taken to hospital but her injury is not considered life-threatening.
See grllllz this is why you can’t be trusted with guns…you all get all emotional and then you do something stupid….just leave guns to the professionals.

Only dogs should carry guns.

Good thing she didn’t go to a hospital in England.
