A 6 year old Ukrainian boy has had his penis bitten off by a horse whilst riding his bike past the animal.
According to the UK’s Sun, the ‘freak attack’ happened as the boy rode his bicycle past the horse when the mare suddenly attacked him, knocking him to the ground and chewing off his member. Indeed.
In horrendous pain and wailing incessantly, the boy ran back to his shocked dad.
Calling an ambulance, medical staff were able to relocate the severed member.
The incident, according to the UK’s mirror took place in the Zhytomyr Oblast region of northern Ukraine.
Family pictures show the animal and child together. Until the biting incident, there had been no sign that the horse was agitated.
Told the child’s father: ‘I was dealing with the horses when I heard my boy screaming, ‘she bit it off, she bit it off!’
‘I put my hands onto his crotch to stop the bleeding and called emergency services.’
The boy was rushed to the nearest regional hospital for emergency surgery.
Said attending Doctor Igor Vishpinsky: ‘We have had difficult cases in the last few years but we never experienced something like this,’
‘Maybe a severed finger or something like that from a horse bite, but definitely nothing like this. It was an extraordinary situation.’
The surgeons managed to stitch the boy’s penis back onto his body.
It is understood that it will take time to see if the operation has been successful.
