Dog chews dead man

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A STARV­ING dog is be­lieved to have chewed the legs of its Vic­to­rian owner who had been dead for up to four weeks. Neigh­bours in Gee­long re­ported per­sis­tent bark­ing from the dog, which led to po­lice mak­ing a wel­fare check on the man on Tues­day. Gee­long Coun­cil said its of­fi­cers, who went to the Nor­lane home with po­lice, were shaken by what they saw and would be of­fered sup­port. The dog has been de­tained by the coun­cil, who will de­ter­mine its fu­ture. The man’s death is not be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious.
