Chimp out!!!

A snow monkey escaped its backyard cage Friday and attacked a neighbor before an HVAC repairman shot and killed it, police in the coastal NC community of Shallotte told The Charlotte Observer Friday evening.

The monkey, also known as a Japanese macaque, “just went bananas,” immediately attacking the next-door neighbor as she talked outside with an HVAC repairman Friday afternoon, Shallotte Detective Sgt. John Holman told the Observer in a phone interview.

    Those folks exposed to said monkey need to be checked out thoroughly. Many of that breed of monkey (Macaque) have herpes virus that can be easily transmitted to those it comes in contact with.

    I think its kind of badass the hvac guy was packing. most companies have rules against that (even stun guns and pepper spray) but id rather be fired than need a gun and not have it. I can always find new work.

      p.s. that guy must be a damned good shot. monkeys are small and fast.

      Darwinism rules again!

      Getting fired is no big deal; after all, weren’t you looking for a job when you found this one?

    I didn’t know a revolver or a semi auto was a needed tool for HVAC. Learn something everyday. Plumbers and Electricians get Auto 12 gauge?

      you get chased by a surprising number of stray dogs when working outside . plus you dont get to choose the neighborhoods you drive around and park in, with a vehicle filled with valuable and easily-pawned tools.

    How many permits were involved with that?
    I’d imagine the HVAC guy had a permit to work, a permit for the truck, they say he has a permit to carry a weapon to protect himself (nice of them not to arrest him for protecting himself). They guy with the monkey has a permit to have pets and I’ll bet the lady who was attacked was married & they had to buy a permit for that too. Permits to live in their houses too…
    Let’s not even mention the permits to drive… Probably had to
