Monkey on Loose in Florida Eats Mail

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida town got a wild surprise when a monkey was spotted on the loose Monday morning.

Residents of Sanford, near Orlando, posted photos on Twitter of the monkey, named `Zeek,` jumping on cars and sitting on a mailbox eating someone`s mail, according to cops."

It`s usually venomous snakes or hungry alligators that menace the good folks in Florida; I`m surprised anybody even called the police to report a mischievous monkey.

The monkey should have been rewarded with bananas; he was performing community service by eating junk mail.

Officers were able to capture the monkey by distracting it with a bottle of water, and it has been returned to its owner. It is legal to own a monkey as a personal pet in Florida.
