A 28 years old San Diego Zoo employee is lucky to be alive as he has been hospitalized and is lying in critical condition after allegedly trying to have sex with a Giant Pacific Octopus.
The 28-year-old employee was found partially naked and unconscious when security agents discovered the young man and alerted an ambulance.
It took medical personnel several hours to successfully release the octopus that had latched itself to the man’s genital area.
“We did the best we could but the octopus’s beak has tremendous pressure and the animal had started to digest part of the man’s genitals,” explained Dr. Julia Andrews of the San Diego Medical Center.
“When we separated the animal from his body, his penis had been severely slashed and was hanging by a thread,” she added.
“We also opened the stomach of the octopus only to find the partial remains of a digested testicle,” she told reporters.
Octopuses usually inject crustaceans like crabs with a paralyzing saliva then dismember them with their beaks that can exert pressure up to 2,300 pounds per square inch (psi), over twice as much as a hyena, lion or tiger, an American Online Newspaper reports.
The boys father while speaking to reporters says,
“He has lost a lot of blood but it’s a good thing he got here on time,”
“I don’t know what the hell he was thinking screwing with that sea critter but with a little reconstructive surgery, the doctor said he’ll be as good as new,”
“I knew he was into heavy metal music and weird satanic stuff but I didn’t know it was that bad,” added his mother in tears.
