GODFREY, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in southwestern Illinois say a woman's decision to bring her pet monkey to a dog outing in a park went awry when the primate bit a boy.
Madison County Sheriff's Department Capt. Mike Dixon says the 6-year-old was treated a hospital for lacerations and bite marks to his arm after Sunday's confrontation in Godfrey, northeast of St. Louis.
Dixon says the monkey's owner brought the java macaque and her dog to the yearly "Bark in the Park" event. Dixon says both animals were on a leash, but the monkey's possessive of the dog. So when a boy tried to pet the dog, the monkey chomped.
Dixon says the woman hasn't been ticketed or charged. But he says the county's animal-control agency is investigating.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois public health officials say the state's confirmed the year's first batch of mosquitoes that have the West Nile virus.
Officials said Monday that the mosquitoes were found in the Cook County community of Hillside.
Last year, the virus was found in 55 of the state's counties and nearly 300 people contracted the illness. Twelve died.
No human cases have been found so far this year.
LaMar Hasbrouck is the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. He says the spring flooding is causing an increase in mosquitoes - both the kind that carry the virus and those that don't.
Most people with West Nile will never show symptoms, but for others it can be fatal.
