'Monkey Mondays' are Over after 8 Year-Old Gets Bitten

The owners of two Capuchin monkeys frequently brought their pets to the patio of a Carrabba's in Florida, even leading staff to call their weekly appearances "Monkey Mondays".

This past July 16 turned out to be the last Monkey Monday after authorities say a 9-month-old Capuchin named JoJo bit a little boy's finger.

The report states that JoJo's owners told the boy's father that he could interact with the monkey but to be careful because the animal was being "hyper."

At first, JoJo seemed to to behave himself, even reciprocated by petting him back. 

However, a waitress stated that the boy got a little wigged out when the monkey touched him. When he tried to pull his hand away, JoJo bit his finger.

The boy's parents took him to the emergency room, where the finger was cleaned up and he was sent on his way.
