"When he opened the door, it like charged at him, at his leg and like clung to his leg and then he was trying to get it off of his leg," Dulach told the Sun-Sentinel. "And it kept coming back in."
A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report said the kinkajou was taken to a wildlife facility. Officers did not say where it came from.
According to National Geographic, kinkajous are native to the tropical forests of Central and South America.
Although many of the kinkajous’ features and traits resemble those of a primate, the kinkajou is related to the raccoon, according to National Geographic.
The night before the attack, the man who was bitten said he saw the kinkajou sitting on a fence outside his apartment and left it some watermelon to eat, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The animal was waiting the next morning when the man opened his door.
“We’ll probably never forget this," Dulach told the newspaper. "Everybody is like, 'Only in Florida.'”
