Dog Eats 23 Live Rounds of Ammunition and Everything Else
Benno the Belgian Malinois has an impressive list of things that he has consumed, including toys, coins, and rocks. He obviously has an insatiable appetite and has now proved that his digestive tract is bulletproof.
His owner had to take the dog to the vet's office after Benno ate 23 live rounds of .308 caliber ammunition.
And when we say ate, we mean chewed vigorously to the point of mangling the ammo, then swallowing each round. Benno eating something inappropriate is not unusual, according to his owner Larry 'Sonny' Grassfield of Mountain Home.
"You can baby proof a house," Grassfield said, petting the happy, hyper dog. "But I don't think it's possible to Benno-proof a house. Lord knows, we've tried and failed."
The following is a list of items Benno has eaten, much to the exasperation and displeasure of his human friends:
- Stuffed animals
- Rubber Toys
- 8X8 square pieces of cloth
- Styrofoam peanuts
- Cheese wrappers
- Wax paper
- Aluminum foil
- Tennis shoes
- Nylon straps
- Weed eater string
- Gasoline-soaked lawn mower air filter
- Plastic bag
- Quilt batting
- Sewing straight pins
- Plastic soda bottle
- Bottle lids swallowed hole
- Television remote
- Loaf of bread (wrapper included)
- Broken glass
- Chicken legs (swallowed whole)
- Nylon hairbrush
- Travel size bottle of lotion
- Drywall (just randomly ate a piece of wall)
