In the early 1990s, a middle-aged woman became intoxicated and passed out in her home. While she was unconscious, her Irish setter began chewing on her face. The wounds ended up being fatal.

The case was documented as one of the most horrific reports of a pet eating its owner. Normally dogs have a waiting period of several days before they begin eating a deceased human, but experts were shocked to learn that the Irish setter started gnawing on its owner after less than 16 hours after she became unconscious.
