Monkey See, Monkey ...

Chico the Monkey was sentenced to death in Spokane Washington for "menacingly" hurling feces armed FBI Agents and biting three people. However, it appears that Chico may have gained a reprieve. Chico, a Java (long-tailed) Macaque Monkey, was suspected of selling fake college diplomas over the internet (or at least his owners were so suspected). Officials with Spokane's Regional Health District had earlier determined that Chico needed to be put down in order to test him for rabies (although some suspect this is really and FBI-ordered hit). Go Chico! Arrrrgh.
