Pet Monkey Who Lived On Frosted Flakes Bites Woman

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A monkey being kept illegally in California as a pet is now in quarantine after biting a woman.

The Javan macaque inflicted severe wounds on the hands and arms of the victim Aug. 29, the Los Angeles Times reported. The monkey was being kept in Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County."


Monkeys are delightful creatures, who amuse us with their mischievous antics, but they are wild animals and they should never be kept as pets.

A monkey can inflict serious bites, and it`s insane to keep one as a pet, especially if you have a baby or small children.

The monkey did nothing wrong, he was simply behaving according to his nature. I hope the authorities find an appropriate home for the animal after he is released from quarantine.

The owner of this wild creature is the one who should be in quarantine - behind bars.

The monkey lived on a diet of Frosted Flakes and juice, you don`t have to be Jack Hanna to know that`s not an appporpriate diet for a monkey. The owner should be charged with cruelty to animals.
