Missing Circus Monkey Found

A missing circus monkey dressed in blue pants has been reunited with his owner.

A friend of trainer Philip Hendricks spotted two-foot-tall Dillion yesterday huddled in the roof area of a picnic pavilion at a park in Springdale, near Cincinnati.

Hendricks is part of the Hendricks Brothers Circus. He was concerned he wouldn't find his missing monkey before the circus leaves town Thursday.

Dillion fled into a nearby woods Monday after being frightened by a train whistle from tracks near where the circus was performing.

Hendricks says the monkey was damp and hungry when found, and seemed happy to see him.
