Tupelo Zoo Searches For Escaped Monkey

‘Oliver, a nine-year-old, white-faced capuchin monkey, has escaped from the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo.

The Tupelo Zoo is asking residents Tuesday to help find Oliver. [..]

Park employee Ann Stewart said Oliver will respond to his own name and may take bait of bananas, marshmallow or grapes.

She urged people to call the park if they spot the mammal and warns that he does bite.

She also says he can outrun a horse.’
