Woman miffed over monkey melee

Associated Press


HONG KONG - A Hong Kong woman says conservation officers chased a stray monkey into her home, where it went on a rampage that destroyed an expensive flat-screen television. Now she's suing the government.

Cai Ai-lan told the Small Claims Tribunal that officials spooked the monkey with nets while they were trying to catch it in September, and it went on a minor rampage in her apartment, the South China Morning Post said.

Cai, 48, says the officials should have been trying to tranquilize the monkey instead. The Apple Daily newspaper said she's seeking 30,000 Hong Kong dollars (US$3,846) in damages to cover damage to the TV, which was knocked down and ruined.Conservation officers said Thursday that any damage to the television was not their fault.

Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department spokesman Albert Hui told The Associated Press the monkey chase had not yet started when it ran into Cai's apartment.

"It is heavier so if the monkey comes again, it's not easily overturned," Cai was quoted as telling the Post.

2. monkeys
I hate monkeys. When I was in high school I went to the L.A. Zoo with my girl freind Kathy. We stopped by the monkey enclosure and watched in horror as one monkey chased another smaller monkey all over the place. When the alpha monkey finally cornered the littler one he anally raped him and then shot a load straight up in the air screeching and yelping like the monkey he is. I looked over at Kathy and she looked at me and we just walked away in silence...feeling quite "dirty".
I hate monkeys!

5. then there was the time
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 08:09 AM by cleofus1
I was on leave in the Phiilipines and a group of us sailors went out into the jungle with a couple of bottles of chevez regal and a portable cassette stereo. We proceeded to guzzle down the scotch and listen to some rock and roll. As we enjoyed ourselves we noticed a group of monkeys crouching just a couple of feet away just watching us. One of the monkeys trundled over to the boom box and started to mess with it, so we threw rocks (small ones) at it and tried to drive it away. Instead the whole group of nasty little simians started to bare their fangs and started drooling and screeching at us. At first we just laughed it off and started barking back. But then, the little bastards started to rush us. We held our ground until one of those monkeys bit one of my pals. He yelled and announced he was, "getting the hell out of here". We all took off in a trot and the monkeys followed us for a while. I will never ever forget the humiliation of being chased off by monkeys..the horror...the horror...
