Bentley rummaged around inside before biting through a glass jar of mayonnaise.

The shards of broken container cut the insides of his mouth as he swallowed several fragments of it. 

His owner, Stephie’lea Davidson, 25, had been out at the time and returned to find blood on the floor.

She was able to watch the video back on the pet camera she had installed in her home to see what exactly had happened before rushing the boxer dog to the vet. 

‘I came home to what looked like a murder scene with blood all over Bentley’s mouth.

‘Because the film could pinpoint the exact time, the vet was able to work out where the glass [had] reached,’ she said speaking to The Mirror.
