A concerned neighbor in a Florida neighborhood recently had to call 911 to report something quite strange: a monkey was eating mail out of a neighbor’s mailbox.
While the Sanford Police Department is used to responding to animal calls, including alligators, snakes and bears, even they admitted that the call about the monkey was a bit “out of the ordinary.”
“Our officers are ready for anything — literally,” Public Information Officer Shannon Cordingly told CBS News.
The mischievous monkey, identified as Zeek, was spotted sitting on top of a mailbox in a Hidden Lakes subdivision. While this site alone would seem unusual, Zeek was also eating the mail. Realizing Zeek probably shouldn’t have been there, the neighbor decided to dial 911 to alert them to the monkey’s whereabouts.
