Something Painful about Canadian Tourists’ Unusual Pleasures?

Our regular readers probably recall The Dumbest Tourist of the Month Award, which went to another Canadian tourist in January.

Matt Brazeau, 36, a Canadian tourist needed hospital treatment after he was severely lanced by an stingray when he tried to get a piggy ride!

Here’s another story of a Canadian tourist who got too friendly with venomous katipo spider, and was bitten on the penis. this is how NZPA reported it

A venomous katipo spider bite on his penis was the high price a tourist paid for a skinny-dip at a Northland beach.

The 22-year-old Canadian left his clothes in the sand dunes while he went for his nude swim and slept on his return, according to a report on the case in today’s online NZ Medical Journal.

“He woke to find his penis swollen and painful with a red mark on the shaft suggestive of a bite. He rapidly developed generalised muscle pains, fever, headache, photophobia [light sensitivity] and vomiting,” wrote Dr Nigel Harrison and colleagues who treated him at Dargaville and Whangarei hospitals.

By the time the man reached Dargaville Hospital, his penis was severely swollen, his blood pressure was up and his heart beat racing.

Chest pain and other symptoms developed the next morning and it was presumed he had been bitten by a katipo. He was treated with anti-venom medicine and rapidly improved.

However, heart problems persisted and he was treated at Whangarei Hospital and Auckland Hospital before returning to Canada.

Katipo spiders are known to have a highly specialised habitat in New Zealand sand dunes and will bite only rarely, and in defence.

This was the first known case of myocarditis, or heart inflammation, caused by a bite, Dr Harrison said.

A prompt diagnosis and the use of anti-venom resulted in a good outcome for the tourist, he said. Copyright NZPA
