Tick eats man's ear!

Tick eats the inside of man's ear.

Check out this picture of a tick inside a man's ear dining on the parts in his ear canal!

The Herald reports that the doctor "inserted a fibre-optic endoscope video into the man's outer ear canal and found the parasite, about 3 to 4mm long, with its eight legs wedged on the eardrum.

The tick, which had been feeding on blood from inside the ear, had caused extensive bruising. It was also "tightly attached" and wouldn't budge, even after framycetin drops were used to try to dislodge it.

Mr Hornibrook anaesthetised the vet's ear and dragged the tick out with a small hook" which apparently made every thing tickety-boo!
