Shock As Elderly Man Gets Mauled By Unknown Animal While Sleeping At Night (Graphic Photos)

Family and friends have been left shocked after an elderly man got mauled by an unknown animal while he was sleeping at night inside his home. 
According to The Sun UK, the man, in his 80s was in bed at his home in Thurnby Lodge, Leicester in England when he was savaged by the animal in the early hours of yesterday morning.

 
The man’s family, who wanted to protect his identity, said that the room was dark at the time so he was unable to see what animal caused his injuries.
 
Photos of the severe injuries have been released to show the extent and severity of the attack.
 
Councillor for the area Teresa Aldred, who knows the family, is urging people, particularly the elderly, to keep their windows shut at night.

Ms Aldred said: “It’s not good to know that there is something out there that can do this kind of thing.

“There are a lot of bungalows in this area and a lot of elderly people. That’s why I’m saying to people they should keep their windows shut.

“People are worried and saying, ‘What would have happened if it had been a child?’.

“There’s no doubt it came through his window into his bedroom and the injuries are awful."
 
Commentators on social media have suggested the creature could be a dog, a panther or even a raccoon.
 
Although it is largely thought to have been a feral cat, which is not used to being close to humans.
The OAP also has cats of his own.
 
The man's family contacted Leicestershire Police about the incident because they feared there could be a dangerous animal on the loose.
 
Ms Aldred said: “We just don’t know what it was, although the police are saying they think it was probably a feral cat.

“This is an elderly man and I know he has a good family around him who will do everything to take care of him.

“He’s also receiving a lot of support from the community.”
 
Sergeant Rob Merrall, of the Humberstone area’s beat team, confirmed the attack was thought to have been carried out by a feral cat to the Leicester Mercury.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it.

This is w…
