China Monkey Attack

BEIJING, Jun 25, 2003 (AP WorldStream via COMTEX)

Four monkeys escaped from a zoo in northeastern China and attacked a woman and her baby before three of the animals were shot to death by police, the official Xinhua News Agency said Wednesday.

The three adult monkeys and one baby escaped Monday from a zoo in Changtu county in Liaoning province, Xinhua said. It did not say what species they were.

The monkeys took refuge in a grove of trees and resisted attempts to recapture them, the report said.

"One of the monkeys pounced on a woman holding a child, biting her arm before leaping back into the tree," Xinhua said. It said police shot the adult monkeys "to prevent further attacks."

The baby monkey escaped and is still at large, Xinhua said.- Monkeys from Chinese zoo attack woman and baby, are killed by police
