They arrested 22-year-old Michael Terron Daniel on June 25 for Cruelty to Non-Livestock Animal after the terrible event took place near his Waco Texas home.
Daniel is accused of assaulting several people at the home, telling them he was on a bad trip from taking K-2 bath salts and that the substance was killing him.
Daniel then went into the yard and started chasing a neighbor on his hands and knees while barking and growling like a rabid dog.
That is when witnesses saw Daniel grab a live, medium-sized black dog and bring it to the front porch where he started beating and strangling the animal in a drug fueled frenzy. He continued abusing the dog, biting into it and ripping pieces of its flesh away as bystanders watched in horror.
When officers arrived, Daniel was sitting, unresponsive and incoherent, on the front porch of the home with the dog dead in his lap, his face covered in a gruesome mix of blood and guts..
Daniel had blood and fur on his hands, clothes and face, and was growling in a “zombie-like” manner at bystanders.
While waiting for the ETMC to respond, Daniel awoke and asked officers several times to tase or fight him to help him off his K-2 bath salt trip. Officers on scene did not do either.
Daniel was quickly taken to Providence Hospital and left in their care because of his medical condition. Daniel was arrested at his job today and taken into custody.
