A man is nursing injuries to his penis after he was attacked by a dog recently.
Persons say he is lucky to have walked away with the greater portion of his organ intact.
According to THE WEEKEND STAR, last Saturday, a man known to residents as Neily, was talking to a woman at her gate in the Stony Hill area of rural St Andrew when he was attacked by one of her dogs.
The incident has since sent tongues wagging as community members, who are very affectionate to Neily for his willingness to assist with odd jobs and 'handyman' work, were grateful that his injury wasn't life threatening and he would soon be able to work for pay again.
"The dog bite me on my d!C$%. He pushed his mouth through the fence, because I was leaning pretty close."
He told our news team that he was rushed to a nearby clinic where he was quickly attended to.
"The nurse took care of it easing the pain and everything. Shots were given to prevent diseases.
Our news team gathered that the dogs in question are known to attack visitors but never before in that area on the body.
A neighbour who spoke to our news team 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 mentioned that he would not be seeking to prosecute the dogs' owners as they took him to get medical attention and ensured that he was taken care of.
The Stony Hill police confirmed the incident.
