Vet loses hand

Surgeons in Taiwan have reattached a vet's arm, after it was bitten off by a crocodile as he tried to give it an anaesthetic injection.

After six hours of surgery, Chang Po-yu is said to be doing well and in a stable condition in hospital.

His attacker is one of a pair of Nile crocodiles kept at Shoushan zoo, in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung.

Nile crocodiles are known to be man-eaters, but are also listed as an endangered species.

Story of how vet loses hand to crocodile

Has this vet never seen Crocodile Hunter? What the hell is he doing putting his hand through a barrier as everyone knows that restricts your reaction movements? Two bullets were shot into the croc's head and it still lives!
