LAKE WORT BEACH, Florida (WPTV / CNN) – After a Florida couple fed a kinkajou, a mammal native to Central and South America, it did not leave them alone, eventually biting and scratching a 37-year-old man.
Michael Literski, 37, says he and his girlfriend Jillian Hicks thought the kinkajou they found on the doorstep on July 24 was a lemur, and his innocent-looking eyes caught their attention. These two left the watermelon for the creature to eat.
“We fed him watermelon because we thought it would be friendly,” Hicks said. But the next morning, when Litersky tried to leave for work, he found that the kinkajou had returned and did not accept the answer “no.”
“So I think it was expected. He wanted so much more watermelon, – said Hicks, – and as soon as he opened the door, he just shivered. The animal bit Litersky’s leg and scratched his shin and shin when he tried to drive him away. it’s outside the home. In the end, he managed to lock him in the bathroom.
“I think it was a draw. Next time I would invest in kinkajou, ”Hicks joked.
