Zoo Says “Lost Monkey” Posters Aren’t Theirs

Zoo Says "Lost Monkey" Posters Aren't Theirs (Image 1)

The Columbus Zoo says there is no monkey on the loose, so the posters in Clintonville aren’t theirs. 

Black and white “Lost Monkey” signs started popping up in the neighborhood, implying that a failed zoo levy caused the primate to break out. 

“Probably will not respond, but its name is ‘Harriet,'” the poster reads.

“Very sweet and friendly unless provoked (may scratch and bite). Fled from Columbus Zoo and recently seen in this area! If this animal is spotted, remain inside with doors and windows shut and locked. Prepare an escape plan just in case because this particular simian has been known to break windows as a means of entrance!

“Please contact Jungle Jack Hanna with any information regarding this rogue ape; please notify the Zoo even if you have not seen this chimp because knowing where it isn’t may help us pinpoint where it is. This is what happens when Zoo levies fail. Maybe next time you’ll vote for the Zoo levy!”

NBC4 will update as more is learned.
