Raccoon break and entry, monkeys not talking

Monkey attack. Sheriff's deputies go on alert.

Only in Florida. How can you refuse to love Florida when it has so many adventurous stories like this one?

Raccoon bites man tending to his monkeys

A raccoon bit a Parkland man Monday as he was tending to his monkeys in his backyard, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Paramedics transported the 77-year-old owner of a home at 5948 NW 72nd Way to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Originally, BSO deputies responded to a call of a monkey attack at that address...

The raccoon apparently got in through an open door, and then escaped after biting the man...

"Apparently" -- I guess this means that the monkeys are lawyered up and not talking to police.

At least the victim is safe, no life threatening injuries.
