Escaped monkey injures two students in Kayseri
AA photoTwo teenage students were injured recently by a monkey that allegedly escaped from a pet shop in the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri, the daily Hürriyet has reported.
The rambling monkey beat two young girls, identified as Özlem Canpolat and Serap Esra Dağ, around their arms and legs. The wounded students were taken to a hospital for treatment.
"It wouldn't shock me if I was attacked by a dog, but to get beaten by a monkey in the middle of the street is quite weird. I've seen it before in a pet shop," Dağ told reporters who visited her in hospital.
The monkey was caught by police after it had been tranquilized with an injection. The shop the monkey belongs to has not yet been revealed.
