This is the astonishing moment a British tourist bites a market trader’s hand in Morocco while trying to liberate one of his caged chickens.
The unidentified young woman – who spoke with a southern accent – launched a foul-mouthed rant while pushing and shoving at locals in Tangiers last week.
After calling the locals illiterate, she climbed on top of the plastic chicken cage and tried to wrench it open, before biting the trader’s hand.
Following a lengthy struggle, she was eventually detained by the crowd and handed over to the police – who reportedly took her to hospital with ‘hysteria’ rather than arrest her.

The incident has caused outrage in Morocco, with some accusing the woman of a contemptuous attitude to the local culture.
Footage filmed by an onlooker – viewed more than 425,000 times on social media – shows the woman furiously berating merchants in the crowded marketplace.
Jabbing her finger repeatedly, she blasts: ‘Are you all that uneducated? You can’t read, you can’t read can you? You can’t f****** read. Are you that f****** thick, you dumb c***?’
She turns to the person filming and calls him a ‘dumb f****** c***’ before sticking her middle fingers up at the camera.
Incredibly, she then climbs on top of the locked chicken crate and tries to force it open.
As the merchant holds the hatch closed, the woman appears to gnaw at his hand and screams ‘get off’.
She continues to tear at the plastic lid and at the man’s fingers as she shrieks wildly at him.
Further clips show her throwing punches and shoving members of the public as they try to calm her down, telling them: ‘You don’t treat animals like that.’

But viewers on social media were appalled by the woman’s ‘disrespectful’ actions – while she was a guest in another country.
One said: ‘Go push your cultural beliefs in your own country, stay away if you don’t like it.’
Another wrote: ‘Even if they let her free the chickens, what does she think will happen? They’ll just roam freely in the city?’
A third added: ‘On behalf of the sane British public, I apologise for this simply atrocious behaviour.’
