A runaway monkey is eluding Saudi authorities seeking to lure it into a cage full of banana as it seems to prefer dancing over its favourite fruit.
Over the past few days, the monkey has been seen by residents in a neighbourhood in the capital Riyadh climbing on top of their roofs before starting to scream and dance.
“We have told the authorities many times about the monkey which is disturbing us and scaring our children,” resident Askar Al Maymouni told the Saudi Arabic language daily Alriyadh.
“They just came and put some open cages on the roofs…but the monkey has not been caught and we still see it screaming and dancing on our roofs.”
