A Fort Lauderdale battalion chief received an unusual injury when he was bit by a pet monkey after responding to a wreck earlier this month.
Adam Bennet was riding his motorcycle with his pet Marmoset monkey in a travel bag when he crashed, according to The Palm Beach Post.
When paramedics arrived on the scene, he reportedly notified them that he had his monkey with him.
Just as Battalion Chief Stewart Ahearn was about to turn off the wrecked motorcycle, the monkey came out from under a wheel and bit the knuckle of his left pointer-finger.
He received a tetanus shot following the incident and suffered a small cut.
According to The Sun-Sentinel, the monkey received 10 days in quarantine and Bennet was issued a warning for failing to properly label the bag the monkey was in.
