Paramedics have a tough gig: Long hours, an intense work environment, the pressure of holding someone's life in your hands. Taking care of hungry cannibals is not usually in the job description, however.

Yes, famished people-eaters are a new hazard on the paramedic beat, if this image from redditor callapygian is to be trusted, at any rate.

Thank heavens the cannibal was "not violent, just hungry." Maybe he was just hoping for scraps, like a stray dog hanging around a restaurant's back door.
