Woman sexually assaulted by Gibraltar’s apes files police report
If chimpanzees can sue for habeas corpus then two of Gibraltar’s barbary apes must be charged with sexually assaulting British tourist Melissa Hart, 23, as she toured The Rock.
“I felt totally helpless as these two monkeys grabbed and pawed me in my most intimate areas,” she says. “Then, with a yank, one of them pulled my bikini top straight off. I was being sexually assaulted and these people all thought it was a great joke.”
The ‘people’ are not the apes, but other tourists and locals. Her ordeal ended only when a warden heard she scrakms and rescued her.
According to local news, the woman filed a police report.
But she says police told her that because the apes are ‘wild animals’ they cannot legally commit a crime, adding: “And if they could, do you think you could pick out your attacker in a line-up?”
Round up the usual suspects. And shoot on sight any of them wearing a bikini…
