Texas Man Eats Dog While on Synthetic Drugs
This synthetic drug-induced zombie apocalypse is apparently now spreading outside of Florida. Naturally, Texas was the next stop. A man there got high on K-2, a form of synthetic marijuana, started chasing his neighbor, and then ate his dog.
Michael Terron Daniel, 22, of Waco, Texas, stands accused of animal cruelty stemming from the June 14 incident.
According to KWTX, a neighbor claims that Daniel told him he was on "a bad trip from ingesting K-2." Daniel then got "on his hands and knees and chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog."
After scaring the neighbors off, Daniel then grabbed the family's pet dog off of their porch. He started beating and strangling the medium-sized black dog. Then, according to police, he "began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away." The dog died on the scene.
Police arrived and found Daniel sitting on the front porch smeared in the dog's blood. While waiting for an ambulance he asked officers to either use a stun gun on him or fight him to help him come off his "bad trip." Police did not comply. Daniel was taken to a hospital.
He was finally arrested on Monday at his place of work.
K-2 is a common brand of synthetic marijuana. These drugs, sometimes sold as incense, have very little in common with actual marijuana, and are more akin to synthetic cocaine, AKA "bath salts."
