Talk about a rude awakening.
A paralyzed man from Trumann, Ark. woke up Monday morning to find his dog had eaten one of his testicles.
To say the “victim was bitten by his dog causing extensive injury,” as it was described on the police report, doesn’t quite do the situation justice.
The 39-year-old man, who refused to be identified, told police that though he cannot feel anything from the waist down, he woke up due to a “burning sensation” around his mid-section.
According to kait8.com, the man told police he sleeps in the nude, and when he woke up around 7:45 a.m., he found the dog between his legs. He also said that he saw his “small, white, fluffy dog” with blood on its snout and front paws.
According to the police report, after he noticed the blood the man discovered “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”
The Trumann man told police the dog was a stray that he had taken in three weeks prior, and was unsure of whether the dog was vaccinated or not.
After the incident, the police took the dog to a local veterinarian to be euthanized. The dog’s head was then sent to the Arkansas Department of Health so it could be tested for rabies.
The victim was taken by EMS to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center to recuperate from the “extensive injury.”
