The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland have confirmed the macaque which escaped Highland Wildlife Park on Sunday 28 February has been caught.

Keith Gilchrist, living collections operations manager at Highland Wildlife Park said:

“We can confirm we have successfully caught the macaque that escaped from the park on Sunday named Honshu.

“After a call to our hotline just after 10am our keepers and drone team made their way to a member of the public’s garden where the monkey was eating from a bird-feeder and successfully used a tranquilliser dart to catch him.

“The monkey is on the way back to the park with our keepers where he will be looked over by one of our vet team and reintroduced to sub-adult males within the group.

“We want to thank everyone who has helped during the process and will continue to share any further updates.”
