A biting monkey known as an "escape artist" is on the loose again in Japan. While the case might be cause for chuckles, authorities say it is no laughing matter. The monkey, a macaque named Rakkii, or "Lucky," terrorized central Japan last year and bit 120 people, the Associated Press reports.
We recently covered the story of a person in Kansas City who stole a meerkat, but in that case, no one was injured and the meerkat was eventually returned. But when it comes to Rakkii, the government is treating this situation seriously and advising residents lock their doors to avoid any contact with the biting monkey turned repeated escape artist.
