Wierdest golf story ever (and pretty disturbing too)!

Yep this one takes the cake as the most strange story I have ever heard (not just about golf either). I read it in my local paper and didn't even believe it at first (and still can't really).

Golf workers fired over Caddy snack

TWO golf club employees in Hawaii have been charged after stealing a patron's dog while he was playing a round, then killing and eating it.

Witnesses told Moanalua Golf Club officials they saw Saturnino Palting, 58, and Nelson Domingo, 43, put the German shepherd-labrador dog named Caddy into a car and drive away at the end of their shift on December 16,.

The dog's owner, Frank Manuma, said he tied up eight-month-old Caddy while he played a round of golf but the dog was gone when he came back, the Associated Press said.

The club fired the workers and investigators later told Mr Manuma they had butchered and ate his pet.

Mr Manuma said he and his wife considered the dog like a child they never had.

A grand jury indicted Palting and Domingo on theft and animal cruelty charges, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $US10,000 ($11,370) fine.

I would love to hear what you think - please leave a comment!
