Too bad he wasn't bit on the 'nads

Jerry Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas was awarded $14,500 plus medical expenses after being bitten on the butt by his next door neighbor's beagle - even though the beagle was on a chain in its owner's fenced yard.
Williams did not get as much as he asked for because the jury believed the beagle might have been provoked at the time of the butt bite because Williams had climbed over the fence into the yard and repeatedly shot the dog with a pellet gun.

I want to say NO WAY, but sadly I buy it.

Makes you wonder what the jury was smoking. I would have awarded the dog monetary damages and shot the goblin with a pellet gun myself.
