Dog eats his owner’s toes

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A DI­A­BETIC US man with no feel­ing in his feet woke up to find his dog had eaten part of his right foot, in­clud­ing three toes. An Ore­gon pa­per re­ports the 61-year-old man, whose name was not dis­closed by po­lice, was in se­ri­ous con­di­tion af­ter call­ing po­lice dis­patch­ers early on Tues­day morn­ing. Ve­teri­nar­ian Alan Ross said the dog may have been try­ing to rid his owner of dead tis­sue, and he may have been at­tracted to the foot if it were in­fected.
