The drug-induced "zombie" attacks continue to tear through the US: a Texas man was arrested yesterday for attacking a neighbor—and then partially eating the family dog. Michael Daniel, 22, had reportedly been smoking synthetic marijuana—known as "spice" or "K-2"—before he began chasing a neighbor on all fours, barking and growling. Witnesses say he then proceeded to beat and choke the dog, before biting it and "ripping pieces of flesh away." Police later found him covered in blood on a front porch, and according to police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, Daniel asked the officers to either fight him or use the stun gun to "help him get off his bad trip." The dog died from the attack, and Daniel has been arrested on felony animal cruelty charges. Daniel's story provides more fuel to the media fire, as synthetic drugs like spice and bath salts have been blamed for many violent attacks over the last few months, from the face-eating man in Miami to the New Jersey man who ripped out his own intestines.
