Moscow - A Russian man was sentenced to one year and three months probation because his dog shot and killed a person, the Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday.

Igor Solomin, aged 44, was adjudged responsible for the October 2010 death of a friend, who was sitting in the driver's seat of an SUV at the time of the accident.

The animal, which the report described as "excitable", stepped on the trigger of a loaded shotgun belonging to Solomin, which was lying in the vehicle's back seat, according to court testimony.

Solomin told a judge in Russia's Saratov province, about 720km south of the capital, Moscow, that he considered himself guilty of manslaughter and regretted the incident.
