They say dogs are man’s best friend, but we’re not so sure after hearing this bizarre story!
A Colorado woman was rushed to the hospital after her retriever Mia stabbed her with a paring knife.
Mia reportedly has a habit of climbing onto counters and snatching up whatever she can in her mouth…including kitchen cutlery.
“Mia even pulls them out of the knife block,” owner Celinda Haynes says. “Anything for me to chase her, she’ll do it.”
Haynes noticed the blade in Mia’s mouth and tried to lure her into releasing it with some treats, but the pup ran towards her in excitement when she saw the food. That’s when Mia accidentally slashed her arm, leaving a gash about 4-5 inches long.
When Celinda Haynes explained to her doctors what happened, nobody believed her, but police determined Mia is the true culprit.
“Obviously, we’re not charging Mia with anything because she’s a dog,” Deputy Zach Johnson said.
