When police were told to be on the lookout for a monkey that had escaped from the zoo, they thought the creature in the photo above was the monkey.
They sprung into action.
As they took what they thought was the monkey into custody, they were expecting accolades from the community for helping get a monkey back home to safety.

Fake news NBC doesn’t make anything up that I’m aware of, but they do downplay a crucial detail in a big story in national news.
