Police Use Bananas To Lure Monkey Back To Captivity


Good morning. I'm David Greene. There's this monkey in the Ontario town of Innisfil that escaped from its owner, drove the cops bananas - or drove the cops to use bananas to lure Mango the spider monkey back to captivity. Mango will now join other monkeys in a local zoo, not the same one that houses another famous Ontario primate, Darwin the Ikea monkey spotted wearing a sheepskin coat at Ikea in 2012. A spokesperson for the town of Innisfil said we're just happy this monkey business has a happy ending. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
