    HONG KONG (AP) - A Hong Kong woman said conservation officers chased a stray monkey into her home, where it went on a rampage that destroyed an expensive flat-screen television.

    Now she's suing the government.

    Cai Ai-lan told the Small Claims Tribunal officials spooked the monkey with nets while they were trying to catch it in September and it went on a minor rampage in her apartment, the South China Morning Post newspaper said.

    Cai, 48, said the officials should have been trying to tranquilize the monkey instead. The Apple Daily newspaper said she's seeking the equivalent of about $5,000 Cdn to cover damage to the TV, which was knocked down and ruined.

    Conservation officers said Thursday any damage to the television was not their fault.
