US man wakes up to find his pet pooch had eaten his toesMarch 3rd, 2011 - 2:12 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, March 03 (ANI): A man in US, who was diabetic with no feeling in his feet, reportedly woke up to find that his dog had eaten part of his right foot, including three toes.
The Oregon paper Roseburg News-Review reports that the 61-year-old man, whose name was not disclosed by police, was in serious condition after calling police dispatchers this week.
The man told emergency responders that he fell asleep on his couch and woke up to find pieces of his foot missing, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Roseburg veterinarian Alan Ross said the dog may have been trying to rid his owner of dead tissue, and said he may have been attracted to the foot if it were infected or gangrenous.
Ross said the dog doesn’t need corrective action because it wasn’t “acting out of meanness”. (ANI)
