A 6-year-old-boy reportedly had his penis bitten off by a horse in Zhytomyr Oblast, Ukraine.
Reports say he was riding past the pet mare on his cycle when it suddenly knocked him to the ground and attacked him.
The screaming boy ran back to his dad, who called an ambulance before finding the severed member,
The father, who did not want to be identified, said: “I was dealing with the horses when I heard my boy screaming, ‘She bit it off, she bit it off!’
“I put my hands on to his crotch to stop the bleeding and called emergency services.”
The boy was rushed to hospital for surgery.
The penis was stitched back on but it will take time to know whether the operation was entirely successful.
Doctor Igor Vishpinsky said: “It was an extraordinary situation.”
