The animals have had about enough of us, I guess. The latest weird story of animals attacking:
An Indonesian villager had to be rushed to hospital after a horse bit off one of his testicles during a freak attack.
The 35-year-old man was unloading sand from a horse-drawn cart at a construction site in Sulawesi earlier this week when the attack occurred, Indonesia’s state-run news agency Antara reported.
A witness said the animal suddenly lunged at the man, sinking its teeth into his crotch.
Shocked bystanders loaded the man into a car to take him to hospital, before one noticed a piece of flesh on the pavement.
“Luckily the horse did not chew up or swallow his testicle, but spit it onto the pavement,” the bystander was quoted as saying.
That last little detail just hammers home the contempt that horse had for the human.
So…is about half my readership cringing and doubling over in sympathetic agony right now?
