A fight outside a nightclub in a town in western France took a turn for the bizarre when a woman from the UK reportedly bit a local woman's thumb clean off.
It's a story that could make even ear-chewing boxer Mike Tyson recoil.
 
It happened last Saturday outside a club in Brest, north western France, when two women reportedly got into a squabble. 
 
Exact details remain unclear, but a 22-year-old French woman is understood to have pushed the friend of a 38-year-old woman from the UK, reported the Ouest France newspaper
 
A scuffle broke out, which ended when the senior Brit bit off the thumb of her Brestoise rival.
 
The thumbless Frenchwoman was then rushed to hospital while a search party was launched for her missing digit. 
 
But despite the searches the thumb has reportedly not yet been found. 
 
The hospitalized woman will likely need a transplant, the paper reported.
 
The British woman is believed to be still on the run, though officers are understood to know her identity.
