"She Cannot Control Her Monkey"

We've all been there.

More than 50 signed a petition asking the Sikeston City Council to look into monkey attacks on their street. The petitioners claim the monkey is a danger to adults and children.

Phyllis Gates thinks otherwise.

" He is usually pretty calm. People make him nervous," Gates said. Gates says she bought the monkey in Kansas City five years ago for $5,000. The monkey's name is Alex.

"I wouldn't say he attacks people, but if he is provoked, he is like other exotic animals, they will attack," Gates said.

Her neighbors say it does not matter if the monkey is provoked, he will attack anyway.

Cindy Sheehan and Mike Berg issued a joint statement blaming the monkey's random attacks on "Bush's unilateral, illegal War on Iraq."

Thanks to DDG.
