Danville, Pennsylvania, residents were warned to look out for three small monkeys run amok after a crash between two trucks on Jan. 21, The Daily Item reported.

State Trooper Andrea Pelachick said a truck with 100 African monkeys on board was on its way to a laboratory when it collided with a dump truck.

She tweeted that "a small number of monkeys may have fled the scene" after escaping from their carriers.

The three escapees were later located and humanely euthanized. [Daily Item, 1/21/2022]
