Infant’s Testicles Bitten by Monkey at Chinese Park
Infant’s Testicles Bitten by Monkey at Chinese Park: Chinese Parents Reach Agreement with Park Management After Monkey Bites Infant’s Testicles
In Guizhou, Guiyang, a pair of parents took their 8-month-old baby to Qianling Mountain Park for a trip on the 18th of October. Unexpectedly, a mischievous monkey grabbed the baby’s testicles and swallowed them in one bite, causing a strong reaction.
After negotiations, the park management has promised to provide specialized treatment for the infant. All medical expenses during the hospitalization will be covered by the park management.
Starting from the day of admission, the management will provide a nursing fee of 400 yuan per day for the first half month, and then 300 yuan per day thereafter.
According to local media reports, the mother of the baby, Ms. Li, has been crying incessantly after the incident, repeatedly saying, “My poor baby, he’s suffering so much at such a young age. He has a long life ahead of him, what will he do?”
The baby’s grandfather revealed that since the incident, Ms. Li has not eaten or drunk anything. Despite others’ efforts to persuade her to take care of herself for the sake of the child, she unconsciously played with a mineral water bottle in her hand without responding.
As for the current condition of the baby, he is peacefully asleep, with a pacifier in his mouth and holding his grandmother’s hand. The baby’s grandmother mentioned that the baby has always been well-behaved and hasn’t cried or complained, even after the effects of the anesthesia wore off. She expressed gratitude for the concern shown by the kind-hearted people from all walks of life.
Dr. Zhu Qijin, the attending physician in the Pediatric Surgery Department of Guiyang General Hospital, stated that the baby’s recovery is currently progressing very well, and if all goes smoothly, the stitches can be removed in about 7 to 10 days.
In fact, on the same day as the baby’s injury, several other incidents involving macaque monkeys injuring people occurred at Qianling Mountain Park. Chen Guang, the secretary of the park management, pointed out that monkey-related incidents happen every year, with the highest number reaching up to 1,500 cases in a single year. The park has to pay compensation fees amounting to millions of yuan each year as a result. He admitted that there are currently no specific measures in place for managing the monkeys.
He reminded the public not to provoke the monkeys and mentioned that in the future, the park will distribute feedback forms to visitors to gather suggestions on how to handle the issue.
After negotiations, the baby’s family and the park management have reached a preliminary verbal agreement. The management has promised to provide specialized follow-up treatment for the baby, and all medical expenses during the hospitalization will be covered by the park management.
Starting from the day of admission, the management will provide a nursing fee of 400 yuan per day for the first half month, and then 300 yuan per day thereafter. As for the subsequent treatment plan, both parties have agreed to seek the opinion of doctors at Guiyang General Hospital.
If the doctor recommends transferring to another hospital or exploring alternative treatment options, the park will take full responsibility. Both parties will schedule a formal agreement signing at a later date. Chen Guang has promised that the necessary funds will be provided promptly, aiming to ensure the child receives the best possible treatment.
