Man Attacked By 4 Escaped Monkeys

MOYOCK, N.C. – A man was injured Thursday afternoon after being attacked by four pet Capuchin monkeys that escaped their enclosure at a home in Wedgewood Lakes around 11:30 a.m. Currituck County Sheriff Susan Johnson said the victim drove himself to the hospital and will probably need stitches. 

Police captured two of the monkeys.  Two others were shot with tranquilizers, one of which died after the tranquilizer pierced his little heart.

The three monkeys are now in custody of Animal Control.

Here’s a video of a Capuchin monkey in a diaper smacking around a pit bull.
