Mad monkey slaps Houston anchor for grape

HOUSTON (CNN/KHOU) — A Houston anchor got some unexpected attention from a furry guest on her morning show.

KHOU’s Deborah Duncan was doing a segment on the animals at the Staples Safari Zoo.

One of those animals is a capuchin monkey named Wilson, who starred in the movie “Dr. Doolittle.”

He didn’t take too kindly to her teasing him with a grape — and gave her a slap.

She laughed it off and was a good sport about it all. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
