No one knows how a kinkajou got to Wise County, Texas — or onto the carport of a local homeowner. After all, the natural habitat of this big-eyed creature that looks like a cross between a monkey and a ferret (it's actually related to the raccoon) is the rain forest. But cops do know what it did when a sheriff's deputy took it into custody: The animal bit the officer so hard its teeth went straight through his "puncture-proof" glove. The sharp-toothed little guy was taken to an animal shelter, where it terrorized some cats before being recaged. Authorities are now searching for a more permanent home. In the meantime, the kinkajou has been given a not-so-affectionate nickname: "Rat Bastard." [Source]
