Can I give you a hand?



If I hadn't stolen this from a reliable site and Reuters wasn't in the credits, I would've bet money this was a Photoshop job. Here's what the caption said:

"A crocodile at a zoo in the southern Taiwan city of Kaohsiung holds the forearm of a zoo veterinarian in between its teeth, April 11, 2007. The crocodile bit off the arm of the zoo veterinarian treating it, an official reported.

UPDATE: Here's a link to the story on Fox News. I HATE Fox News, but in this case they have the best link to more photos that are totally gruesome. And, therefore, fascinating. Enjoy!

I saw that! Of all the shots to get mixed up! I think I would've triple or quadruple checked to make sure the TRANQUILIZERS were the shot being given if I had to go snuggle up to that beast! Hell, maybe even give him two for good measure! I heard they were able to sew it back on- how creepy is that?!?

I was hoping for more gore. I know. I have issues. Cool that they were able to reattach it.

I wonder if they killed the croc? They have a picture of a cop shooting at it, but no picture of a dead croc.

Who's the guy with the camera that's taking pics instead of running for help? I think I'd rather shoot him than the croc!

Ewwwww. Bet he won't do that again!

You'd be shocked if you knew how long I had to look at that picture to see what was "wrong" with it!
