A 22-year-old man was treated at Prince of Wales Hospital last night after being bitten on his little finger by an eel he was taking home on the bus to eat for dinner. The man had bought two live eels from a Mongkok market with a friend. The pair were heading for Sha Tin when the creature slipped out the bag and slid across the floor. As the man tried to recover the eel it bit his little finger. The friend managed to knock the eel unconscious and police were called.
