A dog adopted as a stray by a paralyzed man in Trumman, Ark., exhibited some strange behavior on Monday morning when it chewed off one of its new owner’s testicles while he slept, reports KAIT in Poinsett County, Arkansas.
The man, whose identity has not been released, told police he has no feeling from his waist down and was awakened by a “burning pain” in his mid-section about 7:45 a.m. on Monday. He says he sleeps nude and was surprised to look down and see his new best friend — a “small, white, fluffy” pooch — nestled between his legs with blood on its muzzle and paws.
The 39-year-old man immediately became aware that the dog had eaten one of his testicles.
The victim told KAIT8.com that he had adopted the little stray about three weeks ago in hopes of having a loving animal companion.
Because of the severity of the wounds and the fact that there was no record of the dog having a current rabies vaccination, it was euthanized by a local veterinarian and sent for rabies testing.
Although many details are not being disclosed, the police report indicates that the victim was taken to St. Bernard’s (yes, really) Regional Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
