Two Escaped Monkeys Captured In Florida

monkeys capturedFreedom has ended for two escaped Patas monkeys that escaped a wildlife sanctuary last week in Polk County.

A female monkey and her baby went into one of the set traps Thursday afternoon. There are still 13 others living in the woods north of Lakeland.

The monkeys were being kept on a small island surrounded by a moat at Safari Wild, a wildlife preserved owned by Lex Salisbury who also runs Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.

The monkeys are not dangerous and anyone who sees the escapees is asked to call a hotline set up (813) 470-9307.
