An Iowa man claims he was shot by his own dog while playing around on the couch.
According to the New York Post, Richard Remme claims he and his pitbull-mix ‘Balew’ were horsing around when the dog used his paw to pull the trigger on Richard’s Ruger 9mm that he was wearing around his waist:
“I was lying on the couch, and we were horsing around, me and the dog. And I was tossing him off my lap, and he was jumping back on my lap,” Remme told The Messenger. “Apparently he bumped the safety one time, and when he bounded back over, one of his toes went right down into the trigger guard.“My dog shot me!”Remme didn’t even notice he’d been shot until he saw his bloodied pant leg, he told the paper.“I’m looking around to see where it went to, and I realized it went in my leg,” Remme said. “That’s when I called 911.” (via)
This reminded me of a classic moment on 30 Rock, and I'm sure this is how it went down...
