A BULLDOG reportedly put a man in hospital after it bit off his 4-5.

Emergency services found him out and cold in a pool of blood.

It is alleged that he lost his penis and both testicles.

The incident reportedly happened in Haddington's High Street in East Lothian.

According to the Daily Mail, the 22-year-old was taken to Edinburgh Royal Hospital, where he was induced into a coma.

An investigation is currently underway as how the incident occurred.

It is not known whether the dog belonged to him or not.

Bulldogs were popular up until the 19th century at the peak of bull baiting and had previously been used by butchers to immobilise the animals so they could be slaughtered.

The original Old English Bulldog breed, historically popular for bull baiting, is extinct.

They were used for blood sport but declined in number along with the fall in popularity of bull baiting after the Cruelty to Animals Act was passed in 1835.
