THE MAN WHO GOT EATEN BY HIS DOGS
Of course, the dogs got really, really hungry because of not having any food, so after a while, they killed the two weakest dogs and ate them. And then when Mr. Lumboga got home, they jumped on him and tore him apart and ate him, too. I'm thinking he might have been surprised by this and also sorry that he did not arrange to have his dogs fed while he was gone. It kind of makes you wonder what the heck he was thinking, or if he was thinking at all.
By the time the police found out about the situation, the dogs were hungry again because they had had several days to digest Mr. Lumboga. So the dogs tried to eat the policemen, too, and the policemen had to "paralyze" them. I hope this was just a temporary thing, but I don't know if it was or not. Anyway, the police found Mr. Lumboga's skull in the kitchen, and the rest of his body was in the front of the house. Not that there was a whole lot of the body left.
The part of Indonesia where Mr. Lumboga and his dogs lived is called Sulawesi Island. The pictures I found of this island show lots of nice mountains and beautiful beaches. Also there are some very interesting native houses that look really different from American houses. Pictures like these made me think that Sulawesi Island might be a good place to visit. But I also saw pictures of people killing hogs and bulls for wedding feasts and other special occasions. And I learned that in Sulawesi Island, it is very common to eat dogs, bats, and forest rats.
