It’s a Dog-Eat-Car World

Welcome to the land Down Under, where women glow and men plunder dogs eat cars.

A Darwin man woke yesterday to discover dogs had eaten his car.

And he says it’s not the first time it has happened.

Clayton Dwyer, 47, of Millner, thought his girlfriend was kidding when she woke him up and told him his work ute had been gnawed by a pack of savage dogs. But when he walked outside his Beetson Place home he discovered this was no joke.

His front bumper had been ripped from the car and chewed to bits by the dogs. They had even tried to munch on the front panels.

“You can see the teeth marks,” he said.

Asked what he thought when he first saw the damage, Mr Dwyer said: “Doggone it! That’s a bit ruff.”

The landscape gardener said the pack of wild dogs had been lurking around his neighbourhood for months.

“My girlfriend’s car got eaten about three months ago,” he said. “At first we thought it had been attacked with a hammer, but we took it to the panel beaters and he said it was dogs. You could see the teeth marks on it.”

Mr Dwyer said his neighbours had seen the dogs early yesterday and had chased them away by throwing mangoes at them.

He said he was unsure if his insurance company covered dog attacks.

“I hope they do,” he said.

“It’s actually a new bumper. I only bought it a couple of months ago.

“I know it isn’t the prettiest car, but it didn’t deserve that.”

Dogs eating homework is so old school.

Update: Or is it just an excuse?
