Croc rips off vet’s arm but it’s not all bad news (except for the croc)

Here’s something you don’t see every day. It’s the arm of Taiwanese vet Chang Po-Yu. (Picture: AFP)

The vet had been treating the crocodile for loss of appetite when the reptile attacked.

After shooting the croc dead the arm was recovered and the vet was taken to hospital where doctors were able to reattach his arm after a six-hour operation.
