Brazilian zoo monkeys attack man who wanted to play with them
Monkeys at a Brazilian zoo have attacked and injured a man who swam into their enclosure, saying he wanted to play with them.
Mechanic Joao Leite dos Santos tells Globo TV he was drunk when he jumped into the water separating the spider monkeys from the public at the Sorocaba zoo near Sao Paulo on Sunday.
The network aired amateur video of the shirtless man being mobbed by at least six monkeys and screaming in pain as they bit him. He freed himself and was treated for bites on his hands and arms.
