Fugitive Baboon Captured At New Jersey Farm

The fugitive baboon of central New Jersey was captured on Saturday after she was spotted sitting on a fence post on a farm in Howell Township.

A crew from nearby Six Flags Great Adventure park, located in adjacent Jackson Township, arrived at the farm on Fairfield Road, and used a tranquilizer dart from a gun to put her to sleep, and return her to the 350-acre wild safari exhibit there.

The baboon is about 2 years old, according to Kristin Siebeneicher, a spokeswoman for the park.

"We are fairly confident that it is our baboon," Siebeneicher said.
