Flowery monkey journalism

Someone obviously wants to be writing the screenplay for King Kong 2:

"Maddened by the taste of human blood, its sharp teeth slashing a way through a terrified crowd of pleasure seekers … a giant baboon attacked two women, a man and a boy … singling them out of the crowd and cornering them before leaping at them to inflict ugly wounds with teeth and claws," The Times reported. "For several minutes the infuriated animal, vicious member of the ape family, created a reign of terror on the pier and in the central part of the city as it leaped from victim to victim — suddenly reverting to its jungle instincts to kill." The article detailed how the baboon went straight for Mrs. Irene De Molina of Hollywood.
