Kinkajou barges into Florida woman's apartment, attacks her boyfriend, officials say

(Thanks to Another Ralph, who says “We all know who put him up to it.”)

Florida, land of wonder.

The fear of angry kinkajous is yet another reason why I don't wear shorts and sandals.

I think it's obvious that the woman set this up.

Coulda been a Pikachou.

This could have been far worse if it was one of those venomous Australian kinkajous I've been warned about by a guy who claims he survived the Outback.

I saw Blasted Kinkajous open for the Little River Band.

Girlfriend's interview the realest thing I've seen on the news in ages.

Imagine all the kinkajous
Living life in peace
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Kinkajous can be tamed, but they are not domesticated. They are still basically wild animals, and unpredictable when interacting with humans. They are nocturnal, and I can tell you from experience long ago that they are VERY grumpy if you wake them up in daytime.

Some people just go for the cuteness and try to keep them as pets anyway, with the expected results.

I saw Barging Kinkajous open for Modest Mouse.
