6 Pets Animals Who ATE Their Owners

6 Terrifying Instances Of Pets Eating Their Owners

6. Burmese python
In 1996, a 19-year-old Bronx man died after being attacked by his pet Burmese python. It’s likely that the 13-foot-long reptile mistook the man for food after it escaped its cage. The man was found by his neighbors in a pool of blood with the snake coiled around his torso in his apartment building’s hallway. According to the man’s brother, the victim had purchased the snake at a local pet store for $300 a few months earlier.

5. Pugs
In 2009, a small pair of pugs in Nebraska survived for two weeks on the deceased corpse of their owner after he shot himself. After being found, the dogs were subsequently put up for adoption. A Humane Society spokesman said the animals were unlikely to suffer any lasting psychological damage because “they don’t have memories like people.”

4. Lizards, tarantulas, spiders, and other bugs

Loner Voegel, 30, lived in 2007 in a small German apartment in the city of Dortmund with a small zoo of more than 200 snakes, geckos, and insects. Apparently, he was killed by a black widow bite and subsequently gorged upon by the other crawly creatures. Neighbors alerted police after the stink emitting from his home became too unbearable. “It was like a horror movie,” says Britain’s The Sun. They found the man’s corpse on the sofa with large chunks of flesh missing. “Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and mouth,” said police.
3. Cats
In 2010, dozens of cats had to be removed from a northwestern Pennsylvania home where coroners said the animals had started gnawing at the foot of a dead man, 74, and his deceased mother, 94. The man had apparently been the caretaker for his mother, who died of dehydration after her son suffered a heart attack. Left with no other source of food besides their owners’ corpses, the cats’ survival instincts apparently took over.
2. A hippo
Last year, a 40-year-old former Army major was killed in South Africa after being savagely bitten to death by his pet hippopotamus, Humphrey. The man had adopted the 1.2-ton creature when it was just 5 months old, after the animal was rescued from a flood. “Humphrey’s like a son to me, he’s just like a human,” he said. “There’s a relationship between me and Humphrey and that’s what some people don’t understand.” Experts have since noted that hippos are actually the most dangerous animals in Africa, killing more people each year than lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, and rhinos combined.
1. Pigs
Family members of 69-year-old Terry Vance Garner were shocked to discover the hog farmer’s dentures and an undisclosed body part in the family’s pig enclosure several hours after Garner went missing. Authorities think Garner either suffered a heart attack or was knocked over by the 700-pound animals before being killed and eaten. His brother describes the self-professed animal lover as a “good-hearted guy” whose animals were his life.

10 Animal Friendships That Will Melt Your Heart

Here are 10 extraordinary animal friendships.

Having a buddy to count on in good times and bad is a wonderful thing, and that holds true in the animal community as well.

Here are 10 extraordinary animal friendships.
Number 10. Kala and Kiera. The two shelter dogs gained national attention after a photo of them hugging made the rounds on social media. The pair clung onto one another in the hours before they were to be euthanized. A pet rescue worked with an area Humane Society to save them, and what was almost the dogs’ last day ended up the first of many more to come. 
Number 9. Kasi and Mtani. While a cheetah being best pals with a Labrador sounds like fiction, such a thing really happened. The two were introduced at Busch Gardens, Tampa when they were just 3 months old, and though they didn’t hit it off immediately, they became constant companions. 
Number 8. Tarra and Bella. The elephant and dog besties were almost inseparable in the years they were together at a Tennessee wildlife sanctuary. In fact, when the dog of the duo got injured and couldn’t frolic around the outdoors, her buddy Tarra stood outside where Bella was being kept, just waiting for her to get better.
Number 7. Ruuxa and Raina. Another unlikely cat and dog combo, this cheetah cub and Rhodesian ridgeback puppy made one another’s acquaintance when they were just weeks old. The San Diego Zoo believes to two will be pals for life. 
Number 6. Hoppy and Tiptree. The orphaned deer was taken in by a family in Quebec, and adapted quite well to being a domestic animal. While Hoppy got along with everyone, he shared a special bond with Tiptree the cat. Not long after meeting, the two began to play, cuddle, and even groom one another. 
Number 5. Mona and Max. The lion cub siblings were adopted after airstrikes caused damaged to their previous home, a zoo in Gaza. Their new life in a refugee camp located on the Gaza strip wasn’t the best situation for them, and a rescue group came to move the pair elsewhere. As the duo was being taken away, they held on tightly to one another. 
Number 4. Goof and Amy. The sloths spent roughly 20 years together at the Capron Park Zoo in Attleboro, Massachusetts. In that time they had three children together and formed an incredible bond between one another. After Amy was euthanized due to liver disease, Goof’s health failed quickly. He was laid to rest about a week later. 
Number 3. Edward Scissorhands And His Teddy Bear. Shortly after being born, the baby sloth’s mother was unable to produce the milk he needed. A keeper at the London Zoo hand-reared the little one with the help of a teddy bear, which more closely mimicked the full feeding experience the parent would have provided. 
Number 2. Chutti and Moo Moo Kitty. Both the baby rhino and the Ankole calf were born to fist-time mothers who just weren’t up to caring for them. Workers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park came up with the brilliant idea of introducing the two, anticipating the meeting would be the beginning of beautiful friendship. 
Number 1. Tillie and Phoebe. The doggy duo left the safe confines of their house and went on an adventure, but the good times didn’t last long. Phoebe, a basset hound, fell into a cistern. Tillie stayed by her side, leaving only occasionally to try to get the attention of a man living nearby. Though it took a week, the plan worked and the two were picked up and taken home.
