Monkey Escapes Texas Sanctuary, Traps Woman

Wildlife sightings are expected in the small hills north of San Antonio, Texas.

However, a recent wild encounter with a monkey has spurred the local Sheriff’s deputies into action.

Primarily Primates believe a storm last week ripped open the monkey's enclosure and it allowed the animal to get out.

Sheriff's deputies joined the hunt after a woman reported being attacked and trapped by the primate.

The family says their dog scared up the monkey under the backyard patio and the creature then chased the woman into her garage – trapping her for over an hour.

Too shaken to appear on camera, the woman said her screams finally alerted her nephew who was sleeping in the house.

Sanctuary officials say the monkey is the only escapee after inventorying their populations.
