Monkey on the Loose!

It’s three-feet tall and it’s running wild! Juvenile Sasquatch perhaps?

“Police are puzzled by reports of a ‘vicious’ monkey running loose on Vancouver Island,” say staff at the Huffington Post, British Columbia.

“The Parksville Qualicum Beach News reports that Meadowood residents and a conservation officer are trying to track down a grey, three-foot-high monkey running wild in the small community about 170 kilometres north of Victoria.”

What might it be? My best guess, right now, is that we all simply stay tuned for further updates…

  1. Kind of short on details. When I read the description about the color & demeanor of the simian, I thought possible devil monkey; but have these critters ever been reported on Vancouver Island before?

    As far as it being a baby ‘squatch, I’ve never heard reports of juveniles being vicious. Having said that, I wouldn’t discount the possibility entirely.

    My best guess is that it’s an escaped/released ‘pet’ that belonged to someone who didn’t have the proper license to keep it in the first place.

  2. Well, unless anyone is aware of a grey, three-foot-high (bipedal?) monkey species, sasquatch seems more plausible, that is, if there’s anything to this at all.

  3. So hard to say with such little info. IS it bi-pedal (“running around” doesn’t necessarily speak of bipedalism)? Did it have a tail? As far as the size issue goes, an eyewitness account without a good reference point for scale or of short duration could give faulty info in that regard. A large male rhesus can be about 2 ft. tall & have a 9 inch tail, and are often grey in color. If one was acting aggressively, that might add to its estimated size in the eyes of a witness. What would be helpful would be either a drawing by the eyewitnesses, or an artists rendering based on eyewitness descriptions. I’m sure that would narrow the field some.
