Nothing lends itself to complete chaos like a monkey on the loose in an airport. On Monday, baggage handlers on the tarmac of San Antonio International Airport had to contend with a very evasive and determined monkey, which managed to dodge their clutches for two hours before its handlers could wrangle it back to safety.
The animal was en route to a San Antonio-area wildlife sanctuary after taking off on an American Airlines flight traveling from Logan International Airport in Boston that made a stop in Chicago, ABC affiliate KSAT 12 reported. Media reports initially misidentified the creature as a baboon. It was later confirmed to be a rhesus macaque. Either way, it was a wayward primate that outfoxed its human counterparts for two whole hours.
