Street Camera Shows 'Monkey' Roaming Darwin, Australia

monkeySecurity camera footage has been released that apparently shows a monkey scampering across a street in Darwin.

A bus driver and several other people said they spotted the small primate wandering around Darwin's northern suburbs on Friday morning.

Following the sightings, the Northern Territory environment department issued a warning for people to stay clear of the animal.

"Monkeys can be aggressive and bite," the department said.

All registered monkeys have been accounted for.

The department says the roaming monkey could have been brought illegally to the Territory from Asia and could be carrying exotic diseases, such as rabies.

It says the monkey has not been spotted since Friday.
