He Said It Was Teriyaki

SAN ONOFRE (Reuters) - A local man, who tried to buy off friends by cooking dog meat for them after secretly selling off trees around the state park, ended up setting fire to bathroom #4 when the meal burst into flames, a newspaper said Friday.

Ten bathrooms burned down, leaving nearly 100 people unable to go, the San Clemente Sun said.

The man sold off a 1,000-tree area surrounding the park on the sly, the newspaper said.

"In order to get his friends not to tell anyone what he had done, on the afternoon of May 16, the man got friends to obtain two dogs, which they proceeded to kill on the park grounds," the report said.

"He then told the others they would have dog meat to eat that afternoon," it added.

But the plan went awry when the dog being cooked burst into flames and set fire to the park's main bathroom and then the rest of the bathrooms.

The local courts fined the man $1,252.06, the newspaper said.

Please have your fact checker get 10-20s accurate.
FYI, it's Bldg.#4, not Bathroom#4

No, I am correct. It only burned down the bathroom stalls, not the changing rooms or the whole building. Something to do with excessive methane.

What kind of dog was it?

I fear it may have been a dingo, spca.

The person is as yet unidentified in the media, there's a confidentiality agreement.
