Rest easy, citizens of Ohio — that pet monkey that escaped and scratched a couple of kids has been caught.
The Grivet monkey, which 19 Action News says is about the size of a raccoon, threw free the chains of domesticated life earlier this week, absconding from its owners home.
On its spirited run toward freedom, it did scratch some kids, but they're fine. Police nevertheless told residents of Fremont to keep their kids and pets indoors because no one was looking for more monkey violence.
Thankfully, its owner, who may or may not have been wearing a yellow hat, corralled the Grivet and returned it safely to its proper home.
