Woman Says Chimp Bit Her in '96

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A woman says she complained to police and
the owner of a chimpanzee in 1996, when she says the animal bit her
and tried to pull her into a vehicle as she greeted him.
The woman, Leslie Mostel-Paul, tells NBC's "Today" show that
she complained about the same chimp who critically injured a woman
this week and was fatally shot by police.
Mostel-Paul says the chimp, Travis, bit her hand.
Travis' owner says he was a loving pet whose violent behavior
Monday was out of character.
