Illegal Monkey Living on Frosted Flakes Bites Woman

A Javan macaque monkey being kept as a pet and living on a diet that included Frosted Flakes and juice has been quarantined after it bit a Paso Robles woman multiple times on the hand and arm.The monkey, which authorities said was being kept illegally as a pet, attacked the woman Aug. 29, inflicting several severe bites to her arm and fingers.

The hospital where the woman was treated reported the incident to San Luis Obispo County Division of Animal Services on Sept. 5, Animal Services Manager Eric Anderson said.

“This kind of animal is never meant to be kept domestically. It is illegal,” Anderson said. “It lived on a diet including Frosted Flakes and juice. We strongly discourage the keeping of any such animal.”

He added: “And that is entirely the wrong kind of diet.”  And those cigarettes have to go.
