Lebanese runaway found safe and sound in northern Israel

A runaway monkey who fled from a convent in Lebanon has been captured, some 25 kilometers away in the community of Majd al-Kroum in northern Israel. The monkey was checked over by an Israeli veterinarian to make sure he is healthy.


Somehow the runaway had managed to cross the border without being detected but eventually was picked up after 10 days of searching.

The agile little creature is being repatriated under negotiations with the assistance of United Nations mediators, according to Israel’s Kan public broadcasting network.
