Pet Monkey Goes Ape at Home Depot, Injuring Cashier

A diaper-wearing monkey attacked a Florida Home Depot employee last week as it was trying to find its owner. Marilyn Howard suffered four bite wounds on her arms and head and scratches on her face at the Home Depot in Okeechobee. The spider monkey's name is Spanky and her owner, Tina Ballard, has a history of taking the animal wherever she goes, including shopping excursions. But on the trip to the Home Depot, Spanky was apparently upset about being left in the car.
