A monkey at Zoo to You in Paso Robles called 911 over the weekend, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.
Dispatchers received a 911 call Saturday night that had disconnected, and tried to text and call back, but got no response, according to a social media post from the sheriff’s office.
Deputies were dispatched to the zoo and discovered that no one had made the call.
They realized Route, a capuchin monkey, had taken the zoo’s cellphone from a golf cart and dialed 911.
“As you can see from these photos, Route is a bit embarrassed by all of this,” the sheriff’s office wrote. “But you can’t really blame her, after all, the monkey sees, the monkey does.”
