Tupelo monkey escapes again

Oliver, the monkey that escaped Tupelo's Buffalo Park and Zoo nearly two weeks ago, is on the loose again.

Park manager Kirk Nemecheck and other employees noticed the 9 year old white-faced capuchin's cage open and lock on the ground around 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Oliver and another capuchin named Baby were wandering nearby. Nemecheck said workers easily captured Baby, but Oliver fled the park headed in the direction of the Tupelo Country Club.
