This is absolutely like that one scene from Jumanji!!!
The Sanford Police Department in Sanford, Florida received an interesting call on Monday morning, when a resident dialed police to report that a monkey was eating letters it had pulled out of their mailbox.
Read that sentence again — we’ll give you a minute! LOLz!!
As it turns out, a monkey named Zeek got loose in a Sanford neighborhood and started wreaking havoc on street signs, mailboxes, and cop cars!!!
Yep — when police responded, the monkey promptly jumped on top of one of the vehicles and started playing with sticks and pulling off some of the car’s molding. Luckily, though, according to the cops, they were able to distract Zeek with a very high tech piece of equipment — a plastic water bottle — until his owner could come and retrieve him.
Thankfully, the cops did take some video of the incident (below)!!!
Monkey Loose in Sanford Shortly after 8:00 a.m., we received a call from a Sanford resident that lives in the Hidden Lakes subdivision reporting that a monkey was eating mail out of a mailbox. When we arrived to help the monkey, later identified at Zeek, decided to pull off molding from one of our patrol cars. We were able to distract Zeek with a bottle of water until his owner came and retrieved him. Posted by Sanford Police Department on Monday, September 28, 2015
