A woman and her family in Sibu, Sarawak, are traumatised after they discovered their maid had eaten their pet.
The allegedly "possessed" maid ate the family's pet kitten, while it was still alive, on Thursday, leaving the remains strewn in front of the house, reported Malaysia's The Star.
Upon making the gruesome discovery, the woman confronted her maid, who had apparently been acting strangely for two weeks.
"When I questioned her, she told me she had eaten the kitten," she said.
"Later, she went berserk, compelling us to tie her up."
The woman promised the maid, who is from a neighbouring country, that she would be allowed to return home the next day.
That night, the maid spent the night tied up in the family car, outside the house compound.
Her employer was quoted as saying that the maid appeared normal the next day and was then untied.
"I took her to buy chicken rice... around 10.30am," she said.
"After I got the food, she refused to get into the car and created a scene.
"She ran amok. She then got into the car and threw things out. She also bit an ornamental tree."
When a policeman tried to handcuff the maid, she bit his arm. She was eventually taken to Sibu Hospital in a strait-jacket and with her face covered to prevent her from spitting at people.
The employer said the episode had traumatised the family, and added that she had vivid flashbacks of the torn skin of the kitten in front of her house.
