Police in Cincinnati, United States have launched an investigation into the supposed presence of loose monkeys.

According to news agency United Press International, residents reported them swinging from trees in East Prince Hill.

However, authorities, noted that footages circulating do not clearly show that the animals are indeed monkeys.

In an effort to prove this, they responded to a reported sighting spot but did not encounter any monkeys.

The Cincinnati Zoo said they accounted all of their monkeys for but it will assist in any investigation.

“There’s not much we can do until we have a confirmed sighting,” David Orban, the zoo’s director said.

Police said the monkeys likely escaped from a private collection, but no one has contacted them yet on primates missing.

Last year, a group of monkeys attacked a medical official and stole blood samples from patients infected with COVID-19 in India.

A lab technician at a state-run medical college in Meerut City was walking across campus when he encountered some monkeys.

The naughty animals then snatched the blood samples from the medical staff, all came from infected patients.

Several eyewitnesses from the scene corroborated the said report.
