A man has been arrested after allegedly eating his neighbour’s family dog in a frenzied attack after taking a legal high.
Michael Terron Daniel, 22, is said to have to have torn flesh from the innocent pet with his teeth before beating and strangling it to death.
The horrific attack happened after Daniel is believed to have taken synthetic cannabis known as K2.
Witnesses reported seeing him “on his hands and knees” chasing the animal while “barking and growling like a dog”.
Cops believe Daniel took the medium-sized pooch from the porch it was sitting on in Waco, Texas.
Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton told website KWTX.com that officers found him sitting outside the house with blood on his hands and clothes in an “incoherent and unresponsive” state.
He was later taken to hospital but the dog died at the scene.
The arrest last week follows the incident, which took place on June 14 when a 911 call was made reporting a man “going crazy”.
The legal high is created using herbs which are then sprayed with chemicals to give users a similar hit to cannabis.
But the drug has been known to have dangerous side effects including extreme paranoia, hallucinations and violent behavior.
