Someone saw the monkey drinking from a pond about 11 a.m., Ebersole said. The black monkey, which possibly had a white face, then ran into some woods, Ebersole said. Dispatchers said the monkey is about 3 feet tall. A monkey can pose a dangerous situation because the animals can carry diseases like hepatitis, Ebersole said.
