Washington: A south Florida doctor used a unique procedure to re-grow a man's finger, which a horse bit off.

Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez said that Paul Halpern , 33, arrived in Delray Beach with his finger inside a zip lock bag after his prized, hungry horse mistook his finger for a cookie.

Rodriguez used the bladder tissue of a pig to make a template of Halpern's finger and attached it to what was left.

The result astounded everyone as the finger's cells, bone, soft tissue, even nail grew into the mold, CBS reported.

The doctor has said that it will be nine to twelve weeks for a full recovery.
