The two patas monkeys, indigenous to West and East Africa, escaped on Sunday from an undisclosed location while investigations into the escape are underway. Officials said they have a general idea of where the monkeys are located, but as of Monday e, they have not yet been captured.
"We're still trying to capture them. We have got traps out, some baited cages that we're trying to coax them into, but that takes some time," said Mike McKinnon, the communications manager for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. "They're very skittish, and so they don't just go right into a cage immediately."
