Gibraltar is home to Barbary Macaques who are quite a tourist attraction. But sometimes, as it turned out, the monkeys are attracted to the tourists as well.
Hart described how the monkeys “pawed me in my most intimate areas” and then even managed to rip her bikini top off. Other tourists found the scene funny.
A warden finally rescued Melissa. She then went to the police to register a complaint but they informed her that macaques could not be held legally accountable.
