Tourist pushed off cliff by monkey

A holidaymaker is suing her travel agents after she was pushed off a cliff by a monkey in China.

Zhou Juchang, 60, plunged 20 ft when she was mugged by a monkey for bags of food her tour guide recommended she should buy to feed them.

Zhou broke three ribs and fractured her hip in the fall in Chengdu.

A spokesman for Chengdu Wildlife Park said: “Her mistake was to show fear. If you show fear a monkey will bully you.”

“Her mistake was to show fear. If you show fear a monkey will bully you.”

Worth repeating.

First I thought this is the story the “grieving” spouse told the authorities.

Probably not, but I bet her travel agent is in the UK.

Good advice for when dealing with SEIU and ACORN-hole lumps at rallies. Show no fear, and keep your index finger alongside the frame until you're ready.

Someone needs to tell 0bozo that before he dismantles any more defense systems.

I can not stop laughing at this statement. I guess it's just late.

Feeding monkeys is not a real good idea. Any interaction is probably not a good idea.

Same with Democrats.

LOL About 15 years ago, my wife got mugged by a monkey at a “Monkey Temple” in Lopburi, Thailand. She didn’t fall but it took about 20 minutes and the help of several worshipers who were laughing hysterically to get her purse back. Strange, but we haven’t been back since.

Gator’s are slower, and they don’t drop from the trees.

I’m right there with you. I immediately got the giggles and my husband looked at me like I was insane.

A gator up under a creek bank is really hard to see.
