A missing man from Texas met a very unfortunate end when his own pack of dogs feasted on him! 57-year-old Freddie Mack's existence was determined only from pieces of bones recovered from the dogs' faeces. Medical examiners did a DNA testing on the pieces to confirm it was Mack. Freddie Mack was missing for months but only his bones, that too 2 to 5-inch fragments were recovered. Although it is still not clear whether the dogs killed him or feasted upon his dead remains. Dog Killed Owner? British Farmer Crushed to Death by Forklift Truck Accidentally Driven by His Pet.

Mack was suffering from health problems and it is thus unclear if he passed away because of the medical conditions. In the month of May, Mack was reported missing by his family member. A resident of Venus, the family mentioned that they had not heard of him since mid-April. An ardent dog lover, he stayed with a pack of dogs. But the same dogs proved to be a problem for deputies.

The authorities began a search investigation to find him and eventually returned to his property. As reported in AP, the sheriff's office said they had to use a 'distraction method' to put the dogs away. The investigators found animal faeces containing bits of human hair, clothing and bone. The fragments were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Remains Identification and matched it with DNA testing to Mack. Pet Dog Wakes Up Families in Time to Save Them From Devastating Fire, Dies in Cylinder Blast.

Deputy Aaron Pitts mentioned that 18 mixed-breed dogs devoured on Mack's body. He also added that two of the dogs were killed by their mates, and three have been put for adoption. Meanwhile, the other 13 were put for their "aggressive nature". Pitts used to take good care of his dogs and kept him well-fed. But it is really unfortunate that only his bone fragments were found later.
