Florida woman bitten by primate at Jungle Island

MIAMI (WSVN/CNN) - A volunteer was bitten by a primate Wednesday at Miami’s Jungle Island adventure park.

A woman had to be taken to the hospital after an orangutan she was working with bit her hand.

She was conscious and alert after the incident and is expected to be OK.

A spokesman for jungle island says the volunteer was experienced and had worked with the animal previously.

The park remained open and operated as usual.
