Monkey nips at Texas officer during traffic stop
Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 06/22/2013 6:08:27 AM PDT by SandRat

A South Texas police officer had to deal with some unexpected monkey business as he wrote a speeding ticket.

A pet monkey bit Aransas (uh-RAN'-zuhs) Pass Officer Keith Moore on the hand in an attack captured on videotape.

KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/14b9fO0) that Moore had a video camera on his glasses during the traffic stop.

Moore is seen handing the driver something to sign when a monkey leaps from the back seat, bares its teeth and bites the officer's right hand.

Moore says the monkey "came out of nowhere" during Wednesday's incident. The bite left a mark, but the 21-year-old officer was not hurt otherwise.

The trained monkey makes appearances at carnivals and other entertainment events.

I guess a monkey is special. Had been a dog would have been shot on sight.

Did he riddle the vehicle with bullets? Shooting the monkey and several bystanders, including the owner?, If not then you actually have one guy with more than two brain cells to network!

What happened was the officer said, “Your new baby looks a lot like you” to the driver and the monkey took offence.

This is news? Monkeys are always nipping at Coppers in ChiRaq.
It's so bad that the cops have to shoot the monkeys in self-defense.
