AN Indonesian villager had to be rushed to hospital after a horse bit off one of his testicles.The 35-year-old man was unloading sand from a horse-drawn cart at a construction site in Sulawesi earlier this week when the attack occurred, Indonesia's state-run news agency Antara reported.
A witness said the animal suddenly lunged at the man, sinking its teeth into his crotch.
Shocked bystanders loaded the man into a car to take him to hospital, before one noticed a piece of flesh on the pavement.
"Luckily the horse did not chew up or swallow his testicle, but spit it onto the pavement," the bystander was quoted as saying.
"So I picked it up and brought it to the doctor at the hospital where the victim was being treated."
It was not know whether doctors attempted to sew it back on.
The 70-year-old owner of the horse, Budi, said the animal was trained but sometimes turned wild, and had bitten in the past.
