In His Quest for Wealth, a Man Reportedly Allowed a Hyena to do Something Unspeakable to Him

A man in southern Africa reportedly allowed a Hyena to feast on his naked body — losing several toes and his genitals in the process.

According to the Times of Zambia, which Stanford University classifies as the “web edition of the government-owned print newspaper,” Chamangeni Zulu was following the instructions of a witch doctor who promised wealth if he sacrificed some of his body parts.

“I came from Malawi and when I arrived in Chipata I met some business persons who told me that the best way to become rich was to sacrifice parts of my body,” Zulu told the Times.

“On 24th March, 2014 around 04:00 hours, I went to a bush where I was instructed to be naked and a hyena came to me and started eating my toes and eventually my manhood was eaten,” he added.

According to the Times, Zulu said that after the painful incident he crawled to a road where he was discovered by officers who took him to Chipata General Hospital.

A doctor there described him as stable, but confirmed his genitals had been lost.

“Yes, it is true that he lost his manhood and three toes after being bitten by a hyena, but his condition is stable,” he told the Times.
