Stephen Tello, president of Primarily Primates, said the “ruddy black” monkey, named W.C. Fields, escaped last Tuesday when strong winds from Tropical Storm Hermine pulled open the creature's wire enclosure.
An 87-year-old nearby resident fed the fugitive some watermelon in his garage at one point, but it wasn't a good idea, Tello added.
“Now he's associating open garages with places to go get food,” he said.
Plus, watermelon is not good for a monkey's tummy and “I wouldn't want him to have diarrhea all over people's houses,” Tello added.
I hope they catch that monkey! Believe me, no one wants diarrhea from W.C. Fields all over their house.
