Monkey tears off baby's testicle at zoo, eats it

GUIZHOU, China — An 8-month-old child is recovering after a monkey tore off one of his testicles, then ate it.

Mirror News reported that the attack took place at the Guiyang Qianling Wildlife Park in southwest China. The mother was changing her son’s diaper when the monkey attacked, ripped off his testicle, and dropped it on the ground, according to the report.

An elderly man picked up the severed organ, but the monkey snatched it from him, ran away and ate it, according to the report.

The boy’s injuries are not life-threatening, Chinese media reports.
