Man says that his dog shot him while they were playing

An Iowa man said his dog accidentally shot him while playing Wednesday.

Richard Remme, 51, of Fort Dodge, told police he was playing on the couch with his dog, Balew, and threw the animal out of his lap. Remme noted that the dog, a pitbull and labrador cross, had to deactivate the safety of the weapon he wore in a belt and step on the trigger when he jumped on it again.

The gun went off and hit Remme in the leg. He received care in a hospital and left hours later.

Remme told The Messenger newspaper that Balew is "a crybaby" who stayed by his side and cried because he thought he had done something wrong.
