A man and his dogs

Missing man was eaten by his own dogs, who only left behind bone fragments

"Never have we ever, or anyone we've spoken to, heard of an entire human being consumed," says a deputy who dealt with the case.


Deputy Pitts made an important observation regarding some of the dogs which were offered for adoption.

Quote:
The dogs were said to be well-fed and cared for, and Pitts added, "This man loved his animals."

Pack behavior presumably. Fairly wild anyway by the sound of it.

Some of these dogs have been put up for adoption... And yet

You wouldn't catch a horse doing this. One more reason to prefer our vegetarian friends

[QUOTE=A Tyrant Named Miltiades!;110660201]Some of these dogs have been put up for adoption... And yet

quote that there is no proof that he was alive


he would have been dead. And that then is understandable. I lived in a council flat in england and when an old lady in the same block died. they found her feet and legs had been eaten by her cats. she had been there days.

If I die alone my cats are very welcome to eat the meat of my body ; it is only meat . This man would have felt the same.

Would you not be worried that they'd interfere with you?

We’re they starving I wonder? He was hardly able to keep them well fed and cared for if he had died.

When I was a kid and one dog died, our other dog lay by her, and then lay by her grave for weeks.

Interesting story.

If I am dead I am dead. I am sure coroners and attached medics are well used to anything. They have seen it all, bless them

exactly. He would not begrudge them what he no longer needed. They would have been starving and humans will turn cannibal in a situation like that as they did after an air crash in I think Brazil

I mean the animals might pull down your pants and start nibbling at your genitalia. We have no idea what death entails, you may still have ghost sensation, you may even enjoy those feelings, but if you knew those animals it might also feel wrong?

You might be projecting your own views there. Most people would be disturbed to think their dogs were going to eat them.

Dogs in acting like animals shocker..

Despite what many delusional owners see them as.. they aren't mini humans and are always capable of reverting to basic instinct at any point

Would most people? I don't know. Perhaps.

The idea doesn't bother me either as I'd be dead.
