Monkey Attack

Monkeys have been named one of the smartest primates, behind humans. They can be seen in zoos, circuses and even as pets to brave individuals. Are they as friendly and amusing as people claim?

In Godfrey, Illinois, a 6-year-old boy was taken to the hospital to undergo treatment after being bitten by Nina, a female monkey. The boy, whose name has not been released to the public, was attending an event at Glazebrook Park with his parents when the accident occurred. The Bark in the Park event featured hundreds of locals and their pet dogs, one of which was being protected by Nina the monkey. When the boy reached over to pet the dog, Nina attacked and bit him.

Nina's owner brought her to the park, along with a dog. Authorities claimed that Nina is medically safe and up-to-date on her shots. However, the bitten boy has to take a series of vaccinations to be assured. The boy's family decided not to euthanized Nina, with authorities citing one of the reasons being that the injuries were not life threatening.

Nina is currently being quarantined until further tests are concluded. Her owner is being investigated due to her possibly not having full custody based on Illinois state law.

Have you been injured from an animal attack? Do you think that the family of the bite victim had a case against the Illinois zoo? Regardless of how unusual your claim may be, if you were injured by another person's animal, you are likely able to recover compensation for the resulting harm.
