Officials capture missing monkey in Luzerne County
A potentially dangerous monkey was on the loose for several hours in Ashley this morning after police tried to stop a man driving a stolen all-terrain vehicle, officials said.

The monkey was unleashed, sitting on the rear of the vehicle as police tried to stop the driver around 4 a.m., officials said.

"(The suspect) ran one way, the monkey ran the other," said Gerald Kapral, wildlife conservation officer for the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

"He didn't even have it on a leash or anything. It was sitting in the back, going for a ride," Kapral said.

Kapral said the monkey was a java maca, a breed known to bite, and had one-inch canine teeth.

"If he tore into someone, he could do a lot of damage," Kapral said.

It's illegal for a private individual to possess a monkey in Pennsylvania, Kapral said.

The monkey is owned by Jeff Arnott Sr., of Preston Street, Ashley. His son, Jeff Arnott Jr., 23, took the monkey for a ride on the ATV, the elder Arnott said:

Authorities said the monkey was finally captured around 8 a.m. by the elder Arnott on Barnes Street and turned over to the Game Commission.

Arnott Sr. has had the monkey, named Tyler, as a pet for 15 years.

"He was like part of the family. He played with all the neighbors. He swims in the pool. He was a lot of fun," Arnott Sr. said.

The Game Commission is in the process of transferring the monkey to an animal refuge in central Pennsylvania, Kapral said.

Ashley police say charges are pending against Arnott Jr. in connection with the stolen ATV.

The Game Commission also plans to file charges for illegal possession of wildlife, Kapral said.

Slavery is illegal is most states, actually.
