(Newser) – The man attacked Saturday in Florida by a naked man who tried to chew off his face is fighting for his life in a Miami hospital, reports the Miami Herald, which reveals that the attacker also reportedly tried to gouge out the victim's eyes. But beyond that, there are few new details: Police still are not identifying either man, releasing specifics about the gruesome attack (though cocaine psychosis remains their leading theory), or revealing why both men were naked. But the shocking story has grabbed national headlines—and led to more than one mention of zombies. With quotes like this, it's easy to see why: "The guy just stood, his head up like that, with pieces of flesh in his mouth," says one witness. "And he growled."

The only reason someone would sit still while still living while someone does such a horrendous act on them would be they've been injected with a powerful seditive such as an animal traquilizer which would leave them paralyzed unable to move. And there are paralytic agents powerful enough to render someone incapable of moving or crying out for help while being awake. Good Lord the horror. Ketamine is one that could be used. How sick is the preditor?
