Man Who Tried To Eat Local Family's Dog Pleads Guilty

WACO (September 16, 2013)--A man who tried to eat a family’s dog after a bad trip on a synthetic marijuana drug pleaded guilty Monday to animal cruelty charges.

Michael Terron Daniel, 22, elected to have his punishment decided by a jury and panel selection is set to begin Tuesday morning in 19th District Court.

Daniel pleaded guilty Monday to cruelty to a non-livestock animal in a bizarre incident on June 14, 2012, when a man who claimed to be on the synthetic drug K-2 chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog and then attacked the dog, which he beat, strangled and then started to eat.

The jury could elect to impose a sentence ranging from 180 days to two years.

Daniel also is charged with aggravated assault but court records Monday indicate that issue was not a part of the plea deal.

The June 14, 2012 incident happened at 4601 Athens in Waco where officers were sent after a caller reported that a man was "going crazy."

The man, who evidently assaulted several people at the home and told them he "was on a bad trip from ingesting K-2, "got down "on his hands and knees and chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog," according to witnesses, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said at the time of Daniel's arrest.

The man then took a medium-sized black dog onto the front porch of the home where he beat and strangled the animal and then "began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away," Swanton said.

The dog died at the scene.

Officers found Daniel sitting on the porch with blood on his hands, clothing and face, Swanton said.

He was "initially incoherent and unresponsive," Swanton said, and was taken to Providence Health Center by ambulance.

While waiting for paramedics to arrive, Swanton said, Daniel asked officers to fight him or use a stun gun "to help him get off his bad trip," Swanton said.

Officers did neither, Swanton said.

K-2 is a form of synthetic marijuana.

None of the chemicals the herbal product contains is a copy of anything found in cannabis, although the effects can be similar.

Studies suggest synthetic cannabis use is associated with psychosis and the exacerbation of existing psychotic disorders.

Extreme paranoia, hallucinations and violent behavior have also been reported.

Stop right there. Would a firearm have helped?

I would've gone crazy if that was my dog.

You know it’s a bad trip, when you come to your senses and there is dog fur in your mouth.

Knowing how we feel about the dog, you didn't think we'd eat him all at once, did you?

Synthetic marijuana must cause some serious munchies: enough to make you want to wok the neighbors dog.

Maybe he thought he was muslim and thought the dog was a christian or a jew.

Too bad the dog-owner wasn’t armed.

This is a good time to bring down an eye for an eye sentence.
