#AceDailyNews says according to an AP News Report: US authorities search for missing monkeys after truck carrying 100 primates crashes in Pennsylvania
Kindness & Love❤️ says three escaped their names are Hear No Evil, See No Evil & Speak No Evil LOL 😂
The truck carrying the animals crashed with a garbage truck on Friday afternoon local time in Montour County, Pennsylvania, State Police Trooper Andrea Pelachick told local newspaper The Daily Item.
The truck had been on its way to a lab, Ms Pelachick said.
Montour Country residents joined the police in their search for the missing monkeys in nearby woods.
“We just decided to come and try, see if we could find one,” Nate Allen told local news station WKBN27.
“I saw it on Facebook, and actually this started as kind of a family fun joke about just making an experience and going to try and save a monkey, so I actually brought a kennel, flashlights, night vision goggles,” he said.
There are monkeys on the loose in my hometown. I repeat: Monkeys. On. The. Loose. Nothing this exciting happened when I lived there. https://t.co/xWGcsWKkJF— Riley Sager (@riley_sager) January 22, 2022
An investigation into the accident is underway.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission, the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies have been called in to help with the investigation.
Ms Pelachick told NBC News it was not clear if the missing lab monkeys were carrying any illnesses.
Monkeys are commonly used in scientific research for the production of treatments and vaccines for human illnesses, including coronavirus.
Researchers have found some forms of primate illnesses such as malaria or herpes are transmissible to humans.
Authorities have asked residents who might see the monkeys to keep their distance and contact the police.
A police helicopter was used to try to track down the monkeys with thermal cameras, according to WNEP news, as temperatures dropped to single digits.
It was unclear if any people or animals were injured in the crash.
