#InTheNews: Live Moth Removed From Mans’ Ear After Buzzing For Days

share on:

In a strange but true incident, 43 year-old Rod Fielding had something bugging him. No not a problem, but a moth that was flying around in his ear for three days.

According to rob, “It was horrible when the creature buzzed about inside, and when I felt it move, it made me jump out of my skin”. The moth accidentally poked itself into his ear canal when it landed on his glasses while he was reading in bed, and he tried to swat it away.

He spent three days hoping it would go and had to eventually go to the hospital to get it removed it in a 90-minute procedure. The bug died during the procedure and is now on display as a souvenir at his home in Aylesbury, Bucks.
