Weird News - Animal Eating Boy

Authorities in Indian state of West Bengal rescued a 15-year-old boy tied to a tree for nine years because he used to bite dogs and goats besides gnawing on the feet of relatives and neighbours, officials said today.

Rahul Amin Dhali was just six when he first bit a dog in Biramnagar village, 60km north of Kolkata, the state capital, they said.

A few days later he bit from the flesh of a family member. He then bit a goat and dog.

After neighbours' complaints, the Dhalis chained their son by the wrist to a tree in front of their house.

Dhali had the habit of nibbling at his hands and feet when he failed to lure dogs and cats for a bite.

Doctors said the boy was suffering from a serious neurological disorder and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Kolkata for treatment.
