HOUSTON, April 29 (UPI) -- Don’t mess with monkeys in Texas…
During an appearance on “Great Day Houston,” a Capuchin monkey was none too pleased when host Deborah Duncan teased him with a grape.
Wilson the monkey, who starred in Dr. Dolittle, took the piece of fruit away from Duncan and then slapped the KHOU-TV host in the face.
“I think you just got told by a monkey,” Wilson's keeper said after he smacked her.
Duncan apologized to Wilson as crew members laughed in the background. “I’m sorry, I didn't mean to tease you,” Duncan said.
Wilson was on the show as part of a segment about the Staples Safari Zoo.
