Monkey Escapes Ontario Sanctuary, Again

A monkey is on the lam from an animal zoo in eastern Ontario. The Japanese macaque monkey escaped from Bergeron's Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Picton, located 215 kilometres east of Toronto, sometime between 2 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday. It's not the first time the crafty primate has tasted freedom. Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Lee Abrames said the monkey was missing for about a week when it escaped last year. The 4 1/2-year-old monkey weighs between nine and 11 kilograms, has long brown hair and a red face. The monkey is a possible carrier of the herpes-B virus.
