Jack Russell Glues Jaws Together After Feasting On Morning Post

Jack Russell Toby bit off more than he could chew when he devoured the morning post and the mashed up paper and envelope glue set, locking his jaws together.Owner Gill Bird was stunned when she returned home to discover her mischievous pet could not open his mouth.After Gill, 41, tried unsuccessfully to prise open his locked jaws herself, she drove him to the vet.

Staff there tried to force open the dog’s jaws but had to sedate anxious Toby in order to pick away at the glue and open his mouth.
Toby’s jaws had become stuck together after he ripped up the morning post when it landed on the doormat at Gill’s home in Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire.The envelope glue had become sticky and, mixed with the paper, had set like papier-mache, locking Toby’s upper and lower jaws shut.
