Monkey Loose In Meadowood, BC: Report

Police are puzzled by reports of a 'vicious' monkey running loose on Vancouver Island.

The Parksville Qualicum Beach News reports that Meadowood residents and a conservation officer are trying to track down a grey, three-foot-high monkey running wild in the small community about 170 kilometres north of Victoria.

A Facebook post by the Meadowood Store in Dashwood B.C. appeared to confirm the sighting.

"Yes folks you have heard right. There is a monkey running around Meadowood," it says.

One resident told the Parksville Qualicum Beach News he was approached by a conservation officer and asked if he owned a monkey. But the area fire chief didn't know anything about it, telling the newspaper that their call was the first he'd heard of it.
