The incident happened when the man, from Britain, inserted it into the animal’s rear while he was helping it to give birth.

It topped a list of some of the most bizarre phone insurance claims, with a British woman coming a close second after she accidentally baked her Nokia mobile phone in a Victoria Sponge cake.

Other claims to have made the list - compiled by MobileInsurance.co.uk - include a phone being “worn out by intimate use” while one couple dropped their handset while using it as a prop when re-enacting a scene from ‘Titanic’.
