On the lam since January 2009, the monkey has evaded capture many times. Efforts to catch it have intensified in recent weeks after it bit a woman.
Yates will try to nab the Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay, Florida, by baiting it with one of its kind.
It’s a classic honey pot scheme, but instead of luring the rhesus macaque with a female, Yates is using Doc, a 1-year-old male. If all goes according to plan, Doc will sit inside a custom-designed trap and snack on fruit, enticing the Mystery Monkey with companionship and food.
