Are monkeys loose in Cincinnati?
The Cincinnati Police Department are looking for monkeys near a cemetery in the city, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
It is believed that five primates are missing.
A woman said she took pictures while looking for her cat.
“I thought the monkeys were gone I started making jokes showing my mom,” Alycha Tucker told WLWT.
“My mom thought I was crazy. I said, ‘look there’s monkeys out here.’ Then I heard it making the noises, not ‘ooh ooh aah aah’ stuff, but grunts, so I didn’t know what it was.

“I just stood there as my eyes adjusted to pitch blackness and that is when I saw it, just standing there, taller than garbage can, and its arms were real long hanging down and its arms are real skinny.”
Cops were looking for the monkeys early on April 8.
