Monkeys on the loose!

Monkey8 This blog has totally morphed into a weird-animal-news blog, and that's fine with me.

State workers are trying to round up 15 monkeys (11 adults, four juvies) that broke out of the Lowry Park Zoo near Lakeland on Monday night.

The monkeys - personal pets of zoo owner Lex Salisbury, according to the AP - escaped by swimming across a pond surrounding the zoo island where they live.

The Lakeland Ledger reports it will take another day or two for wildlife workers to capture the monkeys with feed traps.
