A 22-year-old man found unconscious at his Scotland home in September had apparently spread peanut butter “or another food spread” on his private areas before his pet bulldog bit his testicles off.
The Times reports that authorities found the man lying in a pool of blood at his apartment in East Lothian. He was rushed to the Royal General Infirmary where he remained in a coma for days. Once his health improved, the man was transferred to Western General Hospital. He’s now cooperating with authorities and answering questions about the incident.
Authorities stated that no one else was inside the apartment when the ordeal occurred, except the dog, who was found covered in the pet owner’s blood.
The man, whose name has not been released, reportedly said that he applied the food spread to his private parts and his pet, an Old English Bulldog named “Biggie,” began gobbling up it up. In the process, the dog bit the man’s testicles completely off, which could not be re-attached. The owner later consented and signed documents to have the dog put down, according to BBC News.
“The owner of the dog, believed to have been involved voluntarily, signed documentation consenting to [its] the destruction. This [took] place after dialogue between the Crown Office, Scottish SPCA and the East Lothian council dog warden,” a Scottish police spokesperson said.
A neighbor of the pet owner told the Daily Record that Biggie was an “an absolute angel.”
“Biggie is such a nice dog. He isn’t aggressive or anything, and he’s quite small. He’s fine with other dogs. The dog is an absolute angel. I was happy to be around him.”
The man is expected to recover. As of Friday, no one has been criminally charged.
