Woman Says Man Killed, Ate Her Dog in Northern Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – A woman in the northern Uruguayan city of Artigas told police she found a man sleeping in her back yard next to a skillet containing fried parts of her dog, police spokesmen told EFE.

“A man entered his neighbor’s yard, grabbed the small female dog, killed and skinned it, and ate the fried viscera, and the rest of the meat he either ate or sold,” said Olga Garcia, president of animal rights group Olfateando Amigos.

The animal rights group also filed a criminal complaint in the case.

Investigators have identified the suspect and the Artigas police department is trying to arrest him.

The man, however, no longer lives with his parents, the next-door neighbors of the plaintiff, and police said he was a drug addict who roamed the streets.

Police have not determined whether the suspect killed the little dog to get revenge against his neighbor.
