Monkey Hater Since Age 8

When I was 8 years old my Uncle had a pet spider monkey named Cecil.  That monkey hated me right from the start.  He would let everyone hold him and pet him but me.  He would not come near me.  He loved my brothers.   I was only 8 years old and it really hurt me that Cecil would not let me come near him.  One day we went to visit my Uncle.  I was sitting in the living room watching TV.  I couldn't believe it, Cecil came over to the sofa and was sitting near me looking at me.   I called his name and he came and sat in my lap.  I was so excited!  I reached out my hand to pet him and he bit me.  He bit me so hard it drew blood and left a perfect imprint of all his teeth on my arm.   It actually bled quite a bit and oh my gosh did I cry.    It also took a long time to heal and I had to be on antibiotics for a week.  Shortly after that my Uncle donated Cecil to the local zoo.   We visited the zoo one time to see Cecil and he came over to the fence and tried to pee on us.  An evil brat to the end!

Dump em all into a live volcano. Or arctic...better yet, into the Amazon where piraha can enjoy them-I don't! Rather have skunks.

monkeys are the most disgusting, brutal, destructive animals... they really are the closest mammal to a human and they prove it by being so disgusting! lol it shud be illegal for anyone outside of a zoo to own one!

i feel your pain. I hate monkeys too.
