Monkey terrorizes family

July 22, 2010

A Hamilton County family barricaded themselves in their home Wednesday morning to avoid attacks of their pet monkey, which broke out of its cage and began tearing up the house. The Patas monkey, named Eujo, injured a family member and the family’s dog. The family, which has owned the monkey for seven years, plans to keep it. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources plans to categorize the monkey as a "vicious" animal, which means the state could intervene if there is another incident in the future.
