Monkey on the loose in Oxfordshire as owner warns public not to touch it with bare hands


A MONKEY was on the run last night as it’s desperate owner warned people not to touch it with bare hands.

The 14-month-old marmoset was running loose in Kidlington, Oxfordshire, after it broke free from its cage on Monday.

Owner Sarah Yas revealed her pet primate was not domesticated and urged anybody trying to catch the monkey to use gloves or a towel.

She has offered a £100 reward and a bottle of wine for the safe return of the mischievous pet.

Sarah said: "Lost female marmoset monkey in Kidlington on Cromwell Way. 14 months old. Not tame."

“If seen please use gloves or towel to catch her and message me. Thank you."

She added: “Reward £100 and a bottle of wine for whoever brings her back to me."

In Britain, there is no requirement to register ownership of many primate species, including marmosets, tamarins and squirrel monkeys.

Ben Garrod, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of East Anglia, estimates that there are about 4,500 privately owned primates in the country.

Kidlington made headlines in 2016 when throngs of Chinese tourists decided on the village, in search of “the true sense” of the UK.

Residents were left baffled as coaches and sightseers arrived in the village, posing for photos in residents' front gardens.
