Man Loses a Testicle After Horse Bit it Off


A horse attacked a 35-year-old man while he was unloading sand stored in a horse-drawn cart at a construction spot in Indonesia.

According to one of the witnesses the animal attacked the victim in Sulawesi and sank its teeth into the man.

When several bystanders tried to put the man in a vehicle so he would be taken to the hospital, one of them noticed a piece of flash lying of the pavement.

"Luckily the horse did not chew up or swallow his testicle, but spit it onto the pavement. So I picked it up and brought it to the doctor at the hospital where the victim was being treated," said one of the witnesses.

It is yet not known whether the doctors tried to sew the testicle back on, reports The Telegraph. According to the 70-year-old owner of the animal, the horse was trained but there were periods when it turn wild and sometimes even had bitten.
