Mail Eating Monkey Garners Attention From Police

A glorious piece of Florida news has emerged from on The Frisky, and it's about a criminal you might not expect. A monkey was seen sitting on top of a mailbox, but he wasn't just relaxing. Oh no, he was sitting there eating the resident's mail. 

The monkey, identified as Zeek, was casually committing a felony. This is true. But given that he is, again, a monkey, it's doubtful that he was aware of his crime. Which begs the question, why would the homeowner call the police instead of calling animal control? Gotta love Florida news. 

The officers who responded were able to distract Zeek with a bottle of water, and had him sit on the curb until his owner arrived to retrieve him. Now, if you're wondering if it's legal to own little rascals like Zeek, it is legal in Florida. Monkeys can be owned as pets in Florida if you have the proper permit and a cage that meets requirements. However, its unclear if Zeek's owner is meeting said requirements, because this isn't Zeek's first offense.  

Rock on, Zeek. Check out some images of the weird incident below:
