Oliver The Monkey Picks His Lock And Escapes Again

oliver the monkey escapesA Mississippi monkey is on the loose again.

The capuchin monkey named Oliver has escaped from Tupelo's Buffalo Park and Zoo for the second time in two weeks.

Park employees noticed the monkey's cage open yesterday, and the lock on the ground.

Oliver and another capuchin named Baby were spotted wandering nearby. Workers easily captured Baby, but Oliver fled the park headed in the direction of the Tupelo Country Club.

Oliver freed himself on July 31st and led park staff on a chase through the park's trail system. He managed to avoid capture for almost a week.

The park's manager says he just bought $300 worth of new locks for the cage on Friday.
