Authorities Are Pursuing A Lost Monkey In Beijing

Monkey on the loose in Beijing

Have you seen this monkey, Beijingers?

Here, you’re more likely to have seen him from this angle:

Monkey on loose in Beijing 2

That’s because it ran away from authorities on Tuesday morning along East Third Ring Road. “The monkey was first seen at 8 am of November 5, whereupon it evaded capture by the police and is now believed to be somewhere around Taiyanggong,” reports Global Times.

In that article, we also learn that a baboon escaped from Beijing Zoo on October 31. That baboon is not this rhesus monkey; that one is — presumably — still on the loose in our urban jungle.

This rhesus stole food from vendors, which was cute enough of a scene that some people offered to pay for it, reports That’s Online. That’s good to hear. Keep to the right side of Fourth Ring Road — the inner side — and it should be okay. No guarantees for what happens if it ventures into the boonies.

      Take the Tao’s advice Big Guy and stay safe, plus no bloody purse snatching, okay.
