Monkeys are reportedly on the loose in Cincinnati. Police have yet to find them.

CINCINNATI — Police on Thursday have yet to locate monkeys that were reported on the loose near a cemetery late Wednesday. 

At least two calls were made to Cincinnati police about the monkeys, but dispatchers were not able to make further contact with the callers, police said. Officers investigated the area, but no monkeys were sighted.

The report may have been misinformation, but police are taking it seriously, said Cincinnati police Sgt. Jacob Hicks. No officers have reported seeing the monkeys in St. Joseph Cemetery, he said.  

Stephen Bitner, president of Cincinnati Catholic Cemetery Society, which owns St. Joseph Cemetery, said the cemetery has checked its security cameras and saw no activity. 

The cemetery does have a flock of wild turkeys, he said.

“Wild turkeys nest in trees, so the question is were they nesting in the trees, because whoever filmed and put on social media, it was through the power lines because you can see the power lines in the video.”
