A Legitimate DGU in Georgia

A Legitimate DGU in Georgia Local news reports
A hunter is recovering after being bitten by a rattlesnake, and his 9-year-old son is credited with shooting the snake and keeping his wounded father alert until rescuers could reach their location on a mountain.
Authorities say 43-year-old Shane Newton was recovering at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital after being bitten in the leg Sunday near Waleska.
Newton told dispatchers he was shaking badly. His health deteriorated during the nearly hour-long call for help. His son Grant followed the dispatcher's directions to keep his dad alert and talking.
Newton told dispatchers he shot the snake, but later his son said the rattler was moving again and coming toward them. The boy told dispatchers he would shoot the snake again, and reported that he thinks those shots finally killed it.
True DGUs are rare. Most are unnecessary or actually wrong. True DGUs against animals are even rarer. In order to reach the ridiculous numbers they claim, gun-right folks count everything they can, shooting at supposedly rabid racoons, or even imaginary threatening animals in the bushes.
This rattlesnake story is an exception. And the 9-year-old is a hero.
