Price Hill residents caught a glimpse of a truly wild sight on Wednesday night when five monkeys were reportedly seen in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.
The Cincinnati police responded to the situation around 10 p.m. on April 7, according to FOX 19. Police said they believe the monkeys may have escaped from a private collection. At 6:30 am on April 7, FOX 19 reporter Lauren Artino tweeted that officers were actively looking for the monkeys.
So far, CPD has not found any monkeys. Cemetery manager Bruce VanHook told The Enquirer that the “monkeys” may actually be wild turkeys that frequent the cemetery.
