The suspect was wearing blue pants...

SPRINGDALE, Ohio -- The bulletin issued by police in the southwest Ohio town of Springdale describes the subject as two feet tall, weighing eight pounds, clad only in blue pants and prone to sleeping in trees.

Dillion, a circus monkey, fled into a nearby woods early Monday after being frightened by a train whistle from tracks near where the circus was performing in Springdale, in northern Hamilton County.

I guess as long as the fugitive doesn’t get hold of a change of clothes, he should be easy enough to recognize. The circus is moving to the next stop Thursday, and hopes are that the monkey can be recovered before then.

[The monkey’s trainer] suggests that anyone who spots Dillion try to lure him with food. He's fond of apples, oranges, nuts, berries -- and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Feeding Kentucky Fried Chicken to a trained circus monkey. Boy, talk about getting the PETA people up in arms!
