A Capuchin monkey apparently decided yesterday that life looked more interesting on the other side of the bars, Wallkill police said.
The 2-foot primate was spotted by a passer-by shortly before 2 p.m., perched on a guardrail on Schutt Road. Police inquired at the Orange County Fairgrounds, where the annual fair was packing up after closing on Sunday night. They found that the monkey had escaped from a small circus that was part of the fair.
Police last night warned against trying to capture the monkey, who answers to Gucci.
