A pet monkey that escaped from a Noble County home is still on the loose this week, despite a sighting in Guernsey County last Friday.
“It’s just a matter of sighting him and getting there quick enough,” said Hollis McInturff, the monkey’s owner. “With the foliage right now, it’s almost impossible to sight him.”
Noble County Sheriff’s Office Detective Steve Hannum said a truck driver spotted the monkey, named Buddy, running across the road Friday while waiting to unload logs at a logging site two miles east of Ohio 40 near Cambridge. The Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office was unable to confirm the monkey sighting, but McInturff has been looking for Buddy in the Cambridge area since Friday.
