An east Texas woman has received 12 stitches after she is bitten by her pet monkey. On Monday afternoon, The Wood County Sherrif's department was dispatched to East Texas Medical Center's emergency room in Quitman. There they found a woman who was a victim of a bite on her hand.
The woman had reportedly kept Capuchin monkey as a pet for the last eight years. The monkey bit her when she was trying to put a toy inside his cage. The monkey has not had its rabies shots within the last twelve months. It has now been taken to a sanctuary for monkeys in Oklahoma.
