Florida- Monkey escapes, bites man and is captured

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY — A monkey was apprehended Tuesday night after it jumped on a man's shoulder, bit the startled man on the ear and then scurried onto a roof, where the animal was eventually coaxed down and into a cage, WSVN-Ch. 7 reported.

The incident happened about 7 p.m. at a home near Southwest 134th Avenue and 52nd Street. It's believed the monkey escaped from another home in the neighborhood. The monkey-bite victim was taken to a local hospital.
A witness told the WSVN the man had been cooking dinner when the monkey leapt onto his shoulder. When the man tried to swat the black-and-white Capuchin monkey away, it bit his ear and then scrambled onto the roof.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue workers tried to coax the monkey off the roof using a banana, WSVN reported. The creature eventually came down and was secured in a cage brought to the scene by animal control officials.
