An Arkansas man awoke Monday morning to find his dog had eaten one of his testicles, police say.
The 39-year-pold man, who will not be identified, is paralyzed and told Trumann police he had “no feeling from the waist down.”
Around 7:45 a.m. Monday he said he was awakened by a “burning pain” in his mid-section, according to the police report.
The man told police he sleeps in the nude. On that morning, he awoke to find the dog between his legs. He also noticed the “small, white, fluffy dog” had blood on its muzzle and front feet.
When the man took a closer look, the report states he noticed “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”
The victim said the dog was a stray he had taken in about three weeks ago. The man was unsure if the dog had been vaccinated.
Police took the dog to a local veterinarian where it was euthanized. The dog’s body was sent to the Arkansas Department of Health to be tested for rabies.
The victim was taken to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries …
Horrible. Unfortunately for this man, in wild animals there is an instinct to eat the freshly dead as an efficient way to keep predators off of your trail and to keep disease away.
