Scratch that spider monkey alert ... 'W.C.' is home again


This morning, staff from Primarily Primates lured "W.C.," a two-foot-high spider monkey who slipped his enclosure recently ensuring inclusion in this week's QueQue, into the auditorium of Concept Therapy with bananas and grapes. After, they were able to quickly dart the slender money with a tranquilizer — ending Northwest Bexar’s “ape” scare.

“We are so grateful that this is over and the folks at Concept Therapy did all the right things,” said Priscilla Feral, president of Friends of Animals.

So, you vigilant citizens and distraught monkeyphobes can, like, go about your business, hang up those telescopic scopes, and get back to looking busy at work again.
