Men eat neighbourÔÇÖs dog as revenge

Hakahana residents, Michael Mandume and Tobias Shikalepo admitted to eating their neighbour’s dog last week, after it stole a pot of meat they were cooking.
Michael and Tobias claimed the dog had been stealing from them for months and they had already spoken to the owner about the situation.
“I know how crazy this might sound but we killed the dog because we couldn’t take it anymore. We have informed them on a number of occasions and it seemed like the really didn’t care,” he said.
Last week, Michael said, the dog stole a pot of meat he had been cooking on the fireplace.
“We were cooking on an open fire and Tobias went to Wanaheda to get something. I took the pot off the fire and was on the phone with my family for nearly two hours. When I got back into the yard, I found the dog licking the pot clean and it ran away when it saw me,” he said.
He said he waited until his friend Tobias was back, then they plotted revenge by luring the dog their yard and Tobias shot it in the head.
According to owner Philemon Tuhafeni, it had gone missing for two days before news broke that in had been eaten.
“When I went to ask them they confirmed that they had eaten it because it stole their pot. I don’t understand how a dog can steal a pot from the fire and there was almost a fight,” said Philemon, who also revealed that his family had planned to feast on the dog after breading for years.
“I wanted to open a case against them, but my wife talked me out of it and the guys also agreed to give us what had remained of the dog. That is how we resolved the matter, right now we are talking again,” he said.
