Monkey On The Loose In Tampa

monkey on the looseEast Tampa residents called animal control Wednesday about a monkey running loose in their neighborhood.

Gary Morse with Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission identified the animal as a Macaque monkey. Officials said while the animal may seem cute, it can carry diseases.

Officials were able to confirm what type of monkey it was because their investigator crawled up the tree on a ladder and saw it face-to-face. The monkey escaped before they could trap it.

It was last seen near the Norwood Apartment complex.
