A donkey bit off an elderly man’s fingertip in a city on the Caribbean Coast Wednesday.
65-year-old Saul Rodriguez Torregrosa of the coastal city of Cienaga lost the tip of his left middle finger when his donkey suddenly bit him as he tried to bind him after making a delivery. Rodriguez had just finished hauling a load of bricks on his donkey cart when the donkey sheered off his finger as if it was butter.
Rodriguez was rushed to a hospital where his finger was sutured to stop the bleeding. Unfortunately his fingertip could not be reattatched as it had already started to decay.
