An Arkansas man paralyzed from the waist down told police he awoke Monday morning to a "burning pain," only to find his dog chewing on a ball. His ball, that is.
According to the official police report, the 39-year-old Trumann resident regularly sleeps in the raw, and was fully nude when he woke up yesterday around 7:45 AM to discover his dog "had eaten one of his testicles."
The unidentified owner had rescued the "small, white, fluffy" stray just three weeks ago, and had yet to take it in for a checkup.
Sadly, the dog's first visit to a vet was to be euthanized.
The Arkansas Department of Health will test the dog's remains for rabies.
Meanwhile, adding insult to injury, the man was transported to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center to be treated.
