A butcher reportedly died while trying to slaughter a pig in Hong Kong last Friday.
Yep, that old chestnut. Nature Fights back!
The 61-year-old butcher was knocked to the ground by the struggling pig and wounded by a 15-inch meat cleaver, according to city police.
Anyone ever expect to read that sentence ?
The butcher had already shot the pig with an electric stun gun and was about to kill the animal when it regained consciousness and knocked him over, according to CNN. The lesson here as it applies to self defense is to never give up.
A colleague found the man unconscious with a wound on his left foot and a cleaver in his hand. He was taken to hospital and later pronounced dead.
Not a good and lucky start to the Lunar New Year for him.
Hong Kong police said the cause of death has not yet been determined.
The butcher worked in the Sheung Shui slaughterhouse on the northern outskirts of Hong Kong close to its border with mainland China.
The Labour department in Hong Kong has reportedly launched an investigation.
