Owner Loses Toes to Dog While Sleeping
Lexington, KY - In a case that brings back Jameille Jennings, a paralyzed child whose foot was gnawed off by a pit bull puppy, a paralyzed man was rushed to the hospital after he woke to find his dog had gnawed off parts of his toes. Terry Smith awoke to find that his pit bull had "chewed off" four toes. He was taken to the hospital.
Tim Cantrell, who is staying at Smith's home, said he saw the blood on his friend's bed that morning. He realized upon a closer look that Terry's toes were no longer on his feet. Smith has been paralyzed from the waist down for several years; a nurse checks on him once a day. Sadly, no full digits were recovered. China ate Smith's toes down to the joint.
