Man bites dog and horse bites man

Finally it came true, a man has been banned for life from owning animals after he bit his dog.

You got to admit that there might be a case for the man biting the dog, as the dog bit the man first. But then, one has to be careful about these animals and their bites as this case shows: I quote:

The 35-year-old was unloading sand from a horse-drawn cart at a construction site in Indonesia when the attack occurred.

A witness said the animal suddenly lunged at the man in Sulawesi, sinking its teeth into him. As bystanders put the man in a car to take him to hospital, one noticed a piece of flesh on the pavement.

"Luckily the horse did not chew up or swallow his testicle, but spit it onto the pavement," a witness said. "So I picked it up and brought it to the doctor at the hospital where the victim was being treated." It was not known whether doctors attempted to sew it back on.

So if a dog biting a man is not news worthy, but a man biting a dog is newsworthy, where does a horse biting off a man’s testicle fall? (and please, not on the pavement…). Actually, can you really sew a detached testicle back on? Worrying.
