A monkey which prompted a search by staff and police after escaping from a safari park has been found. Keepers at Longleat successfully recovered the juvenile rhesus macaque monkey at about 8pm yesterday. The primate is thought to have made its bid for freedom during the afternoon.
The safari park said: "The monkey was caught close to the estate in a humane trap that was baited with fruit and appears to be fit and healthy. It has now been returned to Longleat where it will be given a thorough examination.
"A detailed inspection of the Monkey Jungle enclosure has not revealed any potential gaps in the secure perimeter fencing, therefore it is possible that the small primate may have been inadvertently taken out of the enclosure on a vehicle.
"Steps have been taken to ensure this cannot happen in the future.
Staff from the park led the search for the "low-risk" animal with the help of officers from Wiltshire Police.
