Police try to round up the primates

CINCINNATI – Police have yet to find monkeys on Thursday that were reportedly reported loose near a cemetery on Wednesday evening.

At least two calls were made to Cincinnati Police about the monkeys, but dispatchers were unable to contact the callers, police said. Officers investigated the area, but no monkeys were seen.

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden Spokeswoman Michelle Curley told The Enquirer, which is part of the USA TODAY Network, that the zoop is ready to respond. Although it is not known whether the reports of monkey sightings are valid.

“We are assessing the situation to see if there is anything we can do to help the Cincinnati Police Department. Nothing could be done in the dark,” said Curley.

Officers first responded to the west side of town around 10 p.m. Wednesday after residents reported seeing the monkeysswinging from trees at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, according to Fox 19. They left the scene after finding nothing, but said they planned to return later Thursday morning.
