38 year old Glen Hackles from Swansea has been attacked by a monkey in Benalmadena.  He was enjoying a tour of the primate area at Selwo Marina with his family, when the monkey jumped from a tree and bit him.

Mr. Hackles told a local newspaper that the monkey “had teeth like stanley razor blades”.  The family are furious that the tour continued, despite the wound on Mr. Hackles’ finger being deep enough to see the bone.

Mr. Hackles suffered an injury on his hand.

Glen Hackles described the incident.   “We were walking along a path when I saw it flying down from a tree on the right, I moved my daughter just in the nick of time.  I dread to think what would have happened if I hadn’t moved my daughter.”

The family were eventually given first aid treatment, a full refund, and Selwo Marina paid for their travel to a local hospital.
