Spider Monkey Captured After Zoo Escape

Last updated on Saturday, June 14, 2008

(MICHIGAN CITY) - Some monkey business in Michigan City has led workers at the Washington Park Zoo to be a little more cautious.

Earlier this week, a spider monkey escaped from its habitat and hopped across several docked boats.

Staff members were able to catch it and pin it to the ground - capturing it.

The monkey escaped when employees were cleaning its living space.
