Police seek monkey that bit Oregon girl

SALEM, Ore. - Police are looking for a man and his pet monkey after the monkey bit a six-year-old girl at Salem's Riverfront Park over the weekend.

SALEM, Ore. — Police are looking for a man and his pet monkey after the monkey bit a six-year-old girl at Salem's Riverfront Park over the weekend.

Salem Police Sgt. John Hardy says he is confident the man and his monkey, who was wearing a diaper, will be found.

The girl, Serena Taylor, is taking antibiotics for possible infections.

Police told the Salem Statesman Journal newspaper that the man and his monkey were on a park bench, and a crowd gathered. Serena asked the man if she could pet the monkey, who looked agitated and jumped at her.

Jan Mothershed at the Oregon Zoo said the animal likely was scared and should not have been taken out in public.
