Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

A 51-YEAR-OLD man from the US state of Iowa says he was shot by his dog, lo­cal me­dia re­ported yes­ter­day.

Richard Remme, of Fort Dodge, was play­ing with his dog Balew, a pit bull-labrador cross, when the dog ap­par­ently flicked the safety catch off the 9mm pis­tol in his belt and hit the trig­ger.

“It dis­charged and went into my leg, did no ma­jor dam­age,” Mr Remme told The

Mes­sen­ger news­pa­per. Balew was not hurt.
