After Two Weeks Abandoned Dogs Eat Returning Owner

JAKARTA, Indonesia ~ (VIVAnews/ Reuters) ~ Seven dogs starved of food and water for two weeks are suspected of eating their owner when he returned from vacation, a local paper reported.

A neighborhood guard became a little curious when he noticed luggage lined up in front of the home of 50-year-old Andre Lumboga. It had been a few days since Lumboga had returned from his trip, and as the guard approached the house he smelled something foul and  called police, according to a report. When cops arrived at the location they found a horrific scene with evidence that Lumboga had been eaten by his starving dogs.

Eriyana, local police chief in Batam, an island off Sumatra, told VIVAnews, "his skull was found in the kitchen and his body was found in the front of his house." Lumboga had returned home on Wednesday, August 31st but his body wasn't discovered until Monday, September 5th. "We suspect the dogs were hungry, so they attacked Andre because they had not been fed for fourteen days," Eriyana added. Police also found the bones of two other dogs, which are believed to have also been eaten by the hungry canines. Lumboga was from the northern island of Sulawesi; a predominately Christian area, where the local diet is quite spicy and is famous in Indonesia for including dogs, bats and forest rats.
