Police lured renegade monkey with bananas

Police in a small central town in Ontario, Canada, used bananas to lure a renegade monkey into captivity on Sunday morning.

Police say a passer-by saw the spider monkey, named Mango, on the loose in a residential area at about 6am.

Officers used the bananas to keep Mango from running away before bringing him into captivity. Police say they were able to find the monkey's owner.

While monkey ownership isn't outlawed provincewide, there are bylaws against it in Innisfil, where the owner lives. Sgt. James Buchanan of the South Simcoe police says municipal officials will carry out a bylaw investigation later this week.
