Brittany Parker Wiki – Bioi
Brittany Parker, a neighbor’s pet monkey attacked an Oklahoma mother in her front yard over the weekend, nearly ripping off her ear while pulling out clumps of her hair.
Dickson’s Brittany Parker told KXII that she was relaxing at her house on Sunday afternoon when a monkey climbed onto her front porch. “He was walking backward, and then he jumped off my railing and hit my storm door,” Parker said. The monkey, whose local owner has not been identified, ripped off part of the home’s door handle before Parker called 911 and police responded to the scene.
Brittany Parker’s age is not mentioned.
‘Pet monkey shot dead after attacking woman”
Footage from just before the attack shows the beige creature climbing up Parker’s porch furniture. Once Parker saw that the monkey was behaving normally toward the officers, she went outside with her son to get a closer look, prompting the animal to attack. He crawled up my back, ripped out several strands of my hair, and then ripped my ear in half. And it was just hanging out,” she told the outlet. Parker was taken to the hospital, where she was treated for her injuries and received a rabies shot. After the attack, the monkey disappeared for several hours before a close friend of Parker’s shot and killed it.
Dickson Police Chief Tim Duncan told KXII that Parker’s call to report the monkey was so bizarre that those who responded weren’t sure they had heard correctly. “It’s Oklahoma, it happens. We get animal calls all the time,” he explained. It’s something we deal with. It’s just that monkeys are not normal for us.”
Both Parker and Duncan also told KTUL that they were unaware that a pet monkey was in the area. Since the woman was seriously injured, we are taking the information to the district attorney’s office and they will make a final decision on what they want to do with this case,” Duncan said. Meanwhile, Parker, who will require plastic surgery for her ear injury, says that she is concerned about the safety of her neighborhood. I think there should be some kind of law that says you need to have some kind of training, as well as a certificate, even to keep these kinds of animals,” she said.
