WACO, TX June 29 2012 (CNN) – Police arrested a man charged with eating his family’s dog while the canine was still alive.
Michael Daniel, 22 of Waco, TX, was arrested after family members called police to their home on June 14. They claimed Daniel assaulted people at home, chased a neighbor and started barking and growling.
