Monkey slaps TV anchor who teased it with grape

Deborah Duncan, the host of Great Day Houston, found herself in an unpleasant and unflattering situation with a furious primate… and the whole incident was aired on live TV.

She probably thought a segment on the domesticated animals at the Staples Safari Zoo in Texas was a great idea, and taunting a famous capuchin monkey was an even better idea.

While Duncan was doing the segment she tried to tease Wilson, a monkey who had become famous after starring in the notorious Dr. Doolittle.

Unfortunately, animals tend to act like divas just like we humans do, reports Things You Didn't Know.

So when Duncan tantalized furry little Wilson with some grapes, the primate decided to give her a piece of his mind and slap her – live on TV.

The hilarious footage shows Wilson dressed in a red T-shirt using Duncan’s face as a punch bag. The TV hostess laughed off the incident.
