April Truitt February 03, 2011

A monkey that attacked three people in North Carolina will be euthanized, the state's veterinarian announced Tuesday.

The animal has bitten a total of three people, officials said, including Patricia Knight, who was freshening its water supply when the monkey bit her over the weekend. John Stacey, the animal's owner, has been charged with keeping a wild and dangerous animal and was given a $50 fine.
