MONKEY NUT Drunk man jailed ‘after being beaten up by 10-inch squirrel monkeys’ when he climbed into their zoo enclosure to steal one

John Owen Casford snuck through the gates at Wellington Zoo in New Zealand only to be set on by the 10-inch tall terrors.

Wellington District Court judge Bill Hastings said: "Your intention was to capture [a monkey] and bring it home to your girlfriend. Your attempt was not successful."

The 23-year-old was ordered to attend a Restorative Justice hearing, during which zookeepers told him that he had traumatized the simians.

Hastings joked: "I don't know what happened in the squirrel monkey enclosure. The squirrel monkeys know. You say you couldn't find them and I don't speak squirrel.

"What I know is that by daybreak all the monkeys were distressed, two of them were injured, and you had a broken leg, two fractured teeth, a sprained ankle, and bruises on your back. You targeted a living creature."

IMHO, Darwin moment.
