Butcher Hacks Off His Hand -- For The Second Time

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A meatworker in New Zealand who accidentally cut his hand off with a saw had the operation to reattach it complicated by the fact that he`d previously cut the same arm off in a previous accident.

Bryan Speers almost completely severed his left hand at the wrist while cutting a flap of meat with a bandsaw at Crusader Meats..."

After accidentally hacking his hand off twice, you`d think Speers would have an epiphany and consider a less dangerous occupation.

Speers is only 26, he is young enough to go to vocational school to learn a new trade. His rehabilitation is expected to take months, plenty of time for him to figure out what to do with the rest of his life.

His wife or significant other can lend him a helping hand by persuading him to become a florist or a magician.

If Speers doesn`t realize it`s time for a career change, he needs the tender ministrations of a psychiatrist a lot more than he needs the skills of a plastic surgeon
