(AP) A diaper-clad monkey who escaped from his Orlando home is in the custody of animal control. Orlando Police said the monkey escaped through a window Friday and was sitting on top of a wall near a condo building.
When passerby's tried to catch the monkey, he charged at them, forcing them to retreat to the street into oncoming traffic.
Authorities used a banana to lure the monkey into a cage where he was then taken to Orange County Animal Control.
Authorities were not able to locate the animal's owners.
