CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A monkey on the loose in Clermont County was shot from its post in a tree on Saturday.  

Clermont County Sheriff's Department along with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources were notified of a loose monkey in the area on Saturday afternoon. Authorities were called to the 300 block of Main Street in Neville, Ohio.

A small monkey was later discovered in a tree. Authorities tried to get the monkey down from the tree without any luck.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said that due to new Ohio laws regulating dangerous animals, the monkey could not remain in the tree. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources was forced to shoot the monkey to get it down.

The monkey's body was sent to the Ohio Department of Agriculture for analysis.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has not received any report of a missing monkey. They are unsure where the monkey came from.
