HOUSTON COUNTY, Texas -- A Texas mail carrier is recovering from a lemur attack.
Marla Reeves says she was finishing up her route Tuesday when a Grapeland family's pet lemur jumped into her vehicle, bit her and jumped out.
Reeves has wounds from two bites, one on her wrist and another on her forearm.
"[I] was fixing to pull away and when I looked back to pull away, that's when I felt the pain in my hand. I looked at my hand and the lemur was on my hand and I lifted my arm up like this, and blood was all down my arm," Reeves said.
The owner of the lemur was able to get him inside a metal cage. The Houston County Sheriff's Office says the lemur will now be quarantined for 30 days and tested for rabies.
