chimp bitesA chimpanzee was contained after it got out of its cage and bit an intern Friday, deputies said.

Deputies and technicians from the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office were called in to help Bend firefighters at Chimps Inc. after a chimpanzee escaped its cage and attacked a worker, Sgt. Bryan Husband said.

Kristen Howard, 23, of Glendale, Ariz., suffered non-life-threatening injuries when someone forgot to latch the cage of a 19-year-old, 120-pound chimp, he said.

Howard, who is in the process of completing an internship at the company, was treated by firefighters after she was bitten and then driven to a hospital, Husband said.

The chimpanzee hasn't had any similar incidents in the 10 years it has been at Chimps Inc. and was quickly put back in its cage, Husband said.
