A lemur used in a street exhibition in Old Town allegedly bit an unsuspecting tourist on May 20, raising issues of how wild and domesticated animals are being regulated in their use by street performers in Key West. Cherish A. Giannetta, of Egg Harbor, N.J., claimed in an affidavit filed with the city's Code Compliance Department that after she held the animal about 10:45 p.m., "The lemur suddenly turned and bit me on one cheek ... then the lemur bit me harder on the cheek (again)."
