It is shown that the regular SO3 non-abelian spherically symmetric monopole solution does not exist in an induced Einstein-Yang-Mills-Higgs model. It is also shown that Higgs scalar hair cannot exist in the presence of a black hole event horizon in this model. The corresponding global behavior of the gauge field is analyzed in a black hole background. In particular, it is shown that a non-trivial non-abelian monopole solution exists only if the radius of the event horizon is smaller than the characteristic radius of the classical monopole.
