Zeek the Monkey Escapes, Eats Mail in Orlando

A Florida town got a wild surprise when a monkey was spotted on the loose Monday morning.

Residents of Sanford, near Orlando, posted photos on Twitter of the monkey, named "Zeek," jumping on cars and sitting on a mailbox eating someone's mail, according to cops.

The Sanford Police Department said they received a call around 8 a.m. to report the monkey roaming the streets, they told NBC affiliate WFLA.

Officers were able to distract the monkey with a bottle of water, after it started tearing at the police cars.

According to the department's Facebook page, the monkey was finally corralled up by a "private owner" after being caught.
