The decomposing body of a 62-year-old man, Glenn Pattinson, was found naked and half-eaten by his own dog, Cujo. He was found dead in his bedroom floor in his rented apartment in Thailand, with reports saying he must have died 10 days ago.
His face was chewed down to the skull by the hungry and thirsty dog.
Rescue workers were only alerted last Friday when neighbours began to complain about the constant barking of the dog.
Paramedics who arrived at the scene also found Glenn’s ribs exposed as Cujo sat by his side. He had dried blood caked around his mouth.
The cause of Glenn’s death has yet to be established, but police said they were not treating his passing as suspicious.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Pasawat Siripon Noppakun said: ”Mr Glenn Stanley Pattinson was found not wearing any clothes.
“He had been dead for between seven 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.” He added.
