He took a licking.
A Scottish woman bit off a part of a person’s tongue in a wild street brawl — and a seagull promptly swooped down and devoured it up, authorities stated in a report.
Bethaney Ryan, 27, clashed with the stranger, James McKenzie, sparking an argument in Edinburgh on Aug. 1, 2019, in keeping with a prosecutor cited by the Edinburgh Night Information.
After McKenzie walked in the direction of Ryan with “a clenched fist,” she inexplicably kissed him — then chomped off a 3-by-2-centimeter piece of his tongue, prosecutor Susan Dickson stated in Edinburgh Sheriff Courtroom Thursday.
“She kissed him on the lips and throughout the course of that she bit by means of his tongue which triggered a chunk of his tongue to be eliminated,” Dickson instructed the court docket.
After he spat out a bloody chunk of the organ, a hen plucked it off the bottom and ate it — making reattachment surgical procedure unattainable, she stated.
“Mr McKenzie walked off and spat part of his tongue out at which level the piece of muscle was picked up by a big seagull that made off with the piece of tongue,” Dickson stated.
McKenzie was handled for “the laceration to his tongue” after it started “oozing blood,” the prosecutor stated.
“He didn’t require surgical procedure given the piece of tongue was now not out there and couldn’t be reattached,” the prosecutor stated.
Ryan, who was arrested, pleaded responsible to the assault on Thursday, in keeping with the outlet. It wasn’t instantly clear what prompted the argument between her and McKenzie.
