Diaper-wearing monkey attacked a Wal-Mart employee in a parking lot
Never underestimate the power of a monkey in a disposable baby diaper.
In a Walmart parking lot in Lancaster, Ohio, on Sunday, a pet monkey wearing a diaper escaped from a parked recreational vehicle. A Walmart employee proceeded to try and corral the monkey near the carts, only to be attacked.
In a video taken by customer Richelle Stewart, the employee struggles to keep the monkey in control.
"Let him go, let him go, let him go," a woman, presumed to be the monkey's owner, yells at the Walmart employee. "If he bites you, they will put him down."
Here's full video of the incident.
"I saw the monkey and he was just standing on the carts," Stewart later told local news station NBC4. "The monkey had escaped from a nearby camper. And we saw the cart guy from Walmart coming over to help her."
A spokesperson for Walmart later said that the employee, while attacked, was not bitten by the monkey. The monkey's owner appears to have pushed the monkey quickly out of the way.
The Department of Agriculture is currently investigating whether or not the owner purchased the monkey legally. The internet is now researching why the monkey was wearing a diaper.
It's been a hard month for Walmart parking lots. Just last week, a swarm of 30,000-60,000 bees attacked random customers in a Walmart parking lot.
Customer savings comes at a cost.
