Six Flags Baboon Captured After Three-Day Walkabout

A baboon that ran away from a monkey safari exhibit in Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, N.J. was caught on a nearby farm Saturday after cruising the area for three days. He was sent back to the park to receive a medical exam and rejoin about 150 fellow baboons.

The AP reports park officials were surprised that the animal escaped because there were no signs of a baboon breach. A driver notified authorities after he spotted one near Interstate 95 Thursday. A woman later spotted the baboon on her back porch, and the sightings began to pile up.

If you were a baboon, where in New Jersey would you hang out for three days?
