LOL, that was a "cat scratch" which made him have a fever, and BTW it refers to a STD. Nickname for getting clapped up! But wow, monkeys are one of those critters I think are on the list of 'they don't make a good pet'. Call me mundane, but I'll stick to big friendly dogs 'of indeterminate breed' from the animal rescue.

Do you recall that a monkey (actually a chimpanzee) ate the face of a women. It happened in 2009, I believe. Now where was that?

Oh yeah... CONNECTICUT!

The article mentions Travis.

The funny thing is that it doesn't seem like she broke the law. It said no primates over 50 pounds, and in the picture it was in a crate like you'd put a toy poodle or Maltese in.

But that monkey was why they added the current law.

Understand that....but, this was carried too far, perhaps on the strength of a hasty law, poorly enforced....

I was sort of thinking that based on the size of the monkey in the photo which looked under 50 pounds as the law stipulated.

The mom is still stupid for having a pet monkey with a child that age in the house.

Everyone involve is stupid. Stupid for having a pet monkey, school is stupid for not minding it's own business over a minor event, the state is stupid doing anything about it.

On the positive side, the monkey did cure her child of her lice problem.
