You write the caption: Mystery Monkey spotted in St. Petersburg




Former St. Petersburg Times employee Don McBride spotted the young male rhesus macaque, which has been on the loose in St. Petersburg for more than a year, and photographed the monkey gazing into a mirror in the Pinellas Point area. The monkey was in his neighbor's backyard near 56th Avenue S and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street on Labor Day.

Though once a symbol of free, frolicking monkey fun, the latest captured image suggests that, sadly, the experts might be right. He's just lonely.
