A monkey found loitering at SMI

UPDATE: 7 MARCH 2015- The cage is still empty and there is no spotting of the monkey since Monday. It could not be in school anymore.

A monkey was spotted three days ago by some students at St Michael's Institution, Ipoh. The boys alerted their teachers who later informed the personnel from the Department of Wildlife.
The primate was initially seen standing at the rooftop of the school main building but later disappeared, possibly due to the attention it got from the students. It re-appeared later in the day much to the amusement from our boys.
The cage which will be used later to trap the monkey.
Yesterday, the men from the Wildlife came with some tranquilizer but the monkey hid itself. This morning, two men were seen bringing in a big metal cage, using possibly a juicy banana as a bait!
We will see how it goes.
