(CMR) A Jamaican man has been hospitalised after having a part of his penis bitten off by his neighbour's dog in Stony Hill, St. Andrew, north of Kingston, Jamaica.
The man, named locally as Neily, had been chatting to his neighbour over her gate in Stony Hill, north of Kingston, Jamaica, when her dog attacked.
He told a Jamaican newspaper that the dog had pushed its nose through the metal bars of the gate and snapped its jaws around his genitals.
He said he was lucky it was not a more severe injury, but that he had still lost a part of his penis.
‘The dog pushed its mouth through the metal because I was standing close to it, and it bit me on my penis,'
he told the newspaper. He told their news team that he was rushed to the Stony Hill clinic where he was quickly attended to.
“The nurse dem look after it and kill the pain and everything. Dem kill out the disease. Mi nah go near dem dog deh again yah man,”
Neily told THE WEEKEND STAR.
Apparently the dog is known to bite people but never in that region before.
A neighbour who spoke to the media said:
“A some aggressive dogs dem, enuh. Dem will attack people from you go close to the premises. But a di first time we a hear dem bite off piece of penis. Glad di dog never tek off everything still.”
Neily said he would not be pursuing his neighbour for any compensation, as she helped him get to a nearby hospital where he received care.
The injury, while painful, is not life threatening and he is thought to be ready to return to his job as an odd job handyman shortly.
The Stony Hill police confirmed that they are aware of the incident.
