A man has been found naked and half-eaten by his own beloved dog on his bedroom floor – with his face chewed down to the skull.
Glenn Pattinson, 62, was eaten by his hungry and thirsty pet, Cujo, after he died at his rented home in Thailand up to 10 days ago.
Locked alone in the room with Glenn, the five-year-old dog began chomping away on his master’s body, including his face and torso.
Rescue workers were only alerted last Friday when neighbours began to complain about the canine’s constant barking.
The neighbours were suspicious that Cujo wasn’t being taken for a walk, leading to the shocking discovery of his owner’s body. Paramedics who arrived at the scene found Glenn naked- with his face chewed down to the skull and his ribs also exposed.
Thai breed Cujo was sitting faithfully by his Canadian master’s side at the apartment in the Sattahip district, near Pattaya.
He had dried blood caked around his mouth. After police arrived at the property, officers posed for a bizarre picture, in which they pointed accusingly at the confused dog.
The cause of Glenn’s death has yet to be established, but police said they were not treating his passing as suspicious.
Resident Bell Suchin, 34, said: ”The foreign man had lived here for about three years and he was friendly.
“He loved his dog, he took him for walks every night.”
Medics said Glenn – who lived alone – had been taken to hospital two weeks ago before being discharged to return home. They said diabetes-related tables were found in the room.
“He had been dead for between 7 and 10 days. The male dog was by his side and did not have water for several days.
”There were no signs of fighting or the room being ransacked. We know that the dead man lived alone.
“The corpse has now been taken for a forensic examination to find the cause of death.”
