Yesterday, a judge fined the couple and put them on probation. They are also on the hook for the $1,524 in damage their furry pal did to the cruiser. But in order to get the chimp back home from the zoo, the pair needs a circuit court order--who knows if they'll get that. Maybe she would
be better off staying at the zoo.
Here's video of the incident
, from the Kansas City Star. Looks like Suco could use a nice cup of chamomile tea, maybe.
Across the state in Kansas City, the saga of Suco the chimp continues. This October, the 21-year-old primate escaped the home she shared with Mark Archigo and Debbie Kaumans and went on a rampage, smashing a police car. She's been cooling her jets at the Kansas City Zoo since the incident.
