ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials say the mystery monkey of Tampa Bay bit a woman during an "unprovoked attack" in St. Petersburg.

Florida Fish and Wildlife spokesman Gary Morse says the woman was sitting outside Tuesday when the monkey bit her on the back.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the incident was reported to wildlife officials, who sent a trapper to the area.

The wild rhesus macaque has become famous in the Tampa Bay area. It has a Facebook page and its plight has been featured on Comedy Central's Colbert Report. The elusive monkey has been spotted numerous times in the Tampa Bay area in recent years.

 LOL, same here! Could you imagine just sitting there, minding your own business and then getting attacked by a monkey out of nowhere?! Man the stories I'd tell...
