Brittany Parker told KOKH that she spotted the monkey as it was attempting to open the screen door to her home. When she went outside to meet police after calling 911, she was attacked. She said she suffered injuries to her face, and needs surgery to repair her ear.
The monkey was later shot and killed by one of Parker's family members.
Police have not identified the owner of the monkey. They also told KOKH they were not aware someone owned a monkey within Dickson city limits.
