Mystery monkey caught after 2 years on the lam

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —

The wild monkey that was on the lam in St. Petersburg for two years has finally been captured.
 
Animal trapper Vernan Yates said the monkey was caught Wednesday on a low branch in a tree. He was hired by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservative Commission to catch the monkey.
 
Yates said earlier this instead of luring the rhesus macaque with a female, he would use Doc, a 1-year-old male that will sit inside a custom-designed trap and snack on fruit. The goal was to entice the mystery monkey with companionship and food.
 
The monkey bit a woman earlier this month and it's not exactly clear where the monkey came from.
