A case of confusion? A hoax? Or the emergence of a new, adorable little cousin to Sasquatch? The Telegraph reports:
Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park’s visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight. Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the “monkey–like” creature.
Miss Cox said: “It was definitely a monkey because you could tell by its hunched back and the way it scampered across the field and up the tree…It could have escaped if someone was keeping it as a pet.”
The park is about 10 miles from the Monkey World attraction in Wool. A spokesman for Monkey World said that all of its monkeys and apes were accounted for.
