The animals were transported in these boxes. A truck loaded with around a hundred monkeys was involved in the accident near the town of Danville.

It was unclear whether monkeys were injured in the accident. “The only way to ensure pathogens are not transmitted from monkeys to humans is to stop importing, confining and experimenting on these animals,” Peta said. “We ask that no one attempts to search for or capture the animal,” police warned. Anyone who sees the monkey should call the police. dpa
