15 Mostly-True Urban Legends

8. Accidentally Eating Your Pet

The most devoted pet owners say their critter companions are part of the family. Some people even develop stronger bonds with their pets than they do with humans. So of course, urban legends are filled with tales about Fidos and Tinkerbells meeting their horrific ends.

Heard of the one about the family who brings their dog to a Chinese restaurant, only to leave with pieces of Lassie in their stomachs?



But did this story happen? Or does it just keep getting served with sides of B-S and xenophobia?

Most likely the latter, but don’t think people haven’t unwittingly wolfed down Scooby.

In 2014, Ryan Eddy of Redding, Calif., made his ex-girlfriend dinner. It was a way of saying sorry for months of abuse. She could have used some companionship since her dog went missing. So, she gobbled down dinner.

She later got these text messages: “How’s your dog taste?”, “I thought it was better with BBQ and those Hawaiian buns.”

If it settles your stomach, the scumbag was served with charges of animal cruelty, domestic violence, false imprisonment, stalking, and illegal weapons possession.
