Dog ate toes

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

A DOG ate three of his owner’s toes as the di­a­betic man slept, most likely out of an in­stinct to re­move dis­eased flesh.

James Lit­tle, 61, called emer­gency ser­vices to say his dog had eaten the body parts.

He said he was ‘‘ do­ing fine’’ af­ter treat­ment and had put the an­i­mal up for adop­tion.

Ex­perts say dogs will some­times try to re­move dis­eased flesh af­ter be­ing at­tracted to a fes­ter­ing wound.
