NEW ORLEANS -- More than 50 monkeys escaped Tuesday from a research center on the Northshore.

All but five have been captured.

The animals, pigtail macaques, were being used for breeding at Tulane University's Primate Research Center at the southern edge of Covington.

A spokesman said the escape happened after a caretaker failed to properly secure a cage.

The spokesman said the animals are not dangerous and do not carry any disease, however, he urged people not to approach them.

Anyone who sees one of the macaques is asked to call the center at (985) 871-6512.

I do hope they find them. They have no ability to fend for themselves, can fall prey to all sorts of other critters and will die a slow death free. :sad:
