Monkeying Around, Curious Monkey Calls 911 to Zoo

A 911 operator in San Luis Obispo, California, received a call on Aug. 12 from the Zoo to You facility in Paso Robles which promptly hung up.

When dispatchers tried to call the number back, there was no answer, ABC7-TV reported. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the zoo, but no one there knew what 911 call they were talking about.

No one except a 10-month-old Capuchin monkey named Route. The deputies determined that the monkey had gotten his hands on a cellphone left in a golf cart and made the call to 911.

“We’re told Capuchin monkeys are very inquisitive and will grab anything and everything,”
