Melbourne, October 19 : An Aussie man was shocked to find that a pack of savage dogs had attacked his car's bumper and front panels and chewed them to bits.
Forty-seven-year-old Clayton Dwyer, of Millner, said that it was his girlfriend who woke him up to tell about the incident.
He said that he, at first, thought his girlfriend was kidding when she told him that some dogs had gnawed part of the car.
However, he could actually see the damage when he walked outside his Beetson Place home.
"You can see the teeth marks," the Northern Territory quoted him as saying.
He revealed that the pack of wild dogs had been lurking around his neighbourhood for months.
"My girlfriend's car got eaten about three months ago. 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," he said.
Dwyer further said that his neighbours had seen the dogs a day before, and chased them away by throwing mangoes at them.
He was worried whether his insurance company would cover 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," he added.
