Monkey on the lam earns global attention

24

March

Do you think Tampa Bay's Mystery Monkey has an agent? Because he's gotten lots of national and international press in the last 24 hours.

The wily monkey has eluded trappers for more than a Monkey year as it traipses across the Tampa Bay area. The rhesus macaque was last seen Sunday in St. Petersburg's Tropical Shores neighborhood, but there have been sightings in Hudson, Temple Terrace, Town 'N Country and Clearwater.

Here's a look at some of the recent coverage of the elusive monkey:
