Kentucky Family Delighted by Unexpected Visit From Monkey

A family in Owenton, Kentucky, were delighted to be visited by a monkey on March 22.

Audrey Lewis, who shot this footage, told local media she had popped by her grandfather’s house after he told her and her aunt he had seen a monkey on his porch.

“So finally, Monday afternoon I stopped by his house and sure enough, there was a monkey on his porch,” Lewis said.

In a Facebook post, Lewis said that after “two hours of bonding we were able to get Mr. Monkey into a cage.”

“After an hour or so of figuring each other out, he and I shared a banana and then he curled up to take a nap in my lap,” she wrote.
