Crocodile bites off zookeepers arm

Guess who won't be sticking needles in crocodiles for a long time...

If the crocodile bit the arm off, wouldn't the bite line be in the crocs mouth?

A 200kg crocodile has bitten off a zookeeper's arm - but surgeons managed to reattach it after reclaiming the limb from the reptile's mouth.

The male crocodile severed Chang Po-yu's forearm at the Shaoshan Zoo in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung.

Mr Chang, a zookeeper and vet, had been trying to retrieve a tranquiliser dart from the crocodile's hide so he could give it medication.

I heard they shot the crocodile and retreived the hand from inside it and rushed to the hospital. There is a video on youtube.
