SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A diaper-wearing monkey named Louie has been put into quarantine for 30 days after biting a San Antonio banker during an outing with his owner.

Officials with Animal Care Services in San Antonio say the owner faces fines of up to $2,000 for having the year-old Macaque (muh-KAK’). San Antonio law bars primates within the city limits.

Agency officials say Louie was removed from a San Antonio home on Thursday. Officials say the exotic monkey was on a leash last week at a bank, but the owner allegedly allowed the animal to interact with the humans before the worker was bitten.

The owner has to pay for Louie’s month of care and testing for rabies.

Further details on the bank employee weren’t immediately available.
