A farmer has died after a pig bit off his penis and three of his fingers, it has been reported.
Miguel Anaya Pablo, 60, allegedly decided to start fighting with his pig after a drunken night out in his home town of San Lucas Ojitlan in south-western Mexico’s state of Oaxaca.
Local media reports that the pig became aggressive after the farmer provoked it, jumping up and knocking him over.
The animal then bit off three of the fingers of Mr Pablo’s right hand and his penis.
The farmer was rushed to hospital in the nearby town of Tuxtepec and treated for the bite wounds.
But despite their interventions, doctors could not control the bacterial infections caused by the pig’s bites.
Mr Pablo eventually died some time after the attack. An autopsy has been ordered to find out more about the exact circumstances of his death
Forensics tests are also being carried out. No details of the victim’s family situation were reported.
