Croc + 1 - Zoo Vet - 1 (arm).....

Croc attack vet's arm saved

*pic of arm in croc's mouth - you were warned:

Spoiler:



Zookeeper's arm reattached after crocodile attack
Police fired at animal; appear to have missed

A TAIWANESE zoo vet has had his arm reattached after it was bitten off by a crocodile.

Earlier reports that the crocodile had been shot have been proven untrue after an examination of the animal.

Chang Po-yu, 38, from the southern Kaohsiung city's Shou Shan Zoo, was injecting the sick crocodile with anaesthetic when it attacked him.

The Associated Press reported that Mr Chang was trying to retrieve a tranquiliser dart from the reptile's hide when it attacked him.

Police shot a crocodile after it bit off the arm - but no bullet holes have been found in its skin.

Dramatic television footage showed a police officer firing on the animal to wrest the severed limb from its jaws.

Chang Po-yu, 38, from the southern Kaohsiung city's Shou Shan Zoo, was injecting the sick crocodile with anaesthetic when it attacked him.

The vet was just trying to give the croc a hand changing its diet to include finger foods.
