If you were watching the Nats television broadcast last night, then you most certainly heard a howler monkey screaming from behind the visitor’s dugout.

If you were there in person, it sounded like this (you might want to turn your volume down):

Following the tale on Twitter, we learned that multiple pleas by fellow fans and several warnings by security did nothing to keep him quiet. According to one tweeter, even some of the Nats were playing zookeeper, bribing him with sunflower seeds and mints.

Nothing worked and the fan screamed like that for inning after inning. And then this happened:

Unbelievable, the screaming Astros fan just caught a foul ball.... #Natstwitpic.com/agr70y

According to Bob Carpenter, the fan gave the caught ball to a nearby kid. Even howler monkeys have their moments.
