Slovakian cannibal's dinner calls in cops

Swiss man declares himself off the menu

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A Slovakian would-be cannibal was shot and cuffed after his intended dinner alerted cops.

The 43-year-old man, from Kysak, was grassed up by his own main course - a Swiss man who answered an internet ad looking for someone willing to be butchered and eaten.

He thought the whole thing was simply a "macabre fantasy game", but after a few phone conversations with the chef, realised the whole thing was deadly serious.

A Kysak police spokesman told media: "It appears this man was genuinely seeking to eat someone. His advert said he wanted someone who would agree to be put to sleep then killed, cut up, cooked and eaten."

Police sent in an undercover officer posing as the volunteer victim, but the sting ended in a gunbattle. The spokesman said: "One of our officers and the suspect both suffered gunshot wounds during the arrest and are both being treated in hospital."

AP has a video report on the Cannibal of Kysak right here. ®
