    A young boy who had his face ripped off in a vicious attack by a gang of monkeys underwent an incredible facial reconstruction.

    When Dunia Sibomana was six years old the creatures attacked him, his brother and his cousin while they were playing near a nature reserve in the Congo.

    Tragically Dunia’s four-year-old brother and his cousin died from the injuries inflicted during the savage attack.

    While Dunia survived his attack, he suffered devastating wounds to his face – which required 14 surgeries to reconstruct.

    The ferocious beasts ripped off the then six-year-old's lips completely, as well as tearing his right cheek apart.

    He also lost a finger and part of his ear during the 2014 attack.

    Medics managed to save the young boy and the non-profit foundation Smile Rescue Fund for Kids was able to send Dunia to New York for reconstructive surgery.

    Two years after the attack, Dunia had tissue and muscle from his forearm grafted to recreate his lips.

    And after 14 surgeries the now teenager is making efforts to turn his life around.

    The Daily Star recently reported how a woman who had her face ripped off and was bitten more than 800 times in a vicious dog attack revealed the results of her incredible facial reconstruction surgeries.

    Jacqueline Durand, from Texas, was mauled by two dogs just a day before her 22nd birthday in December 2021 when she entered the home of a couple she was dog-sitting for.

    During the horrifying attack, they tore off Jacqueline's nose, ears, lips and cheeks down to the bone.

    Three mountain climbers were also left with broken legs after they were attacked by a troop of angry baboons.
