Diaper-clad monkey escapes Fla. homeSorry, but the plural of passer-by is not passerby's. It's passers-by. Let this be a lesson to all you passers-by. Do not attempt to capture escaped monkeys in diapers, unless you have a banana. Anything else will be...fruitless.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A diaper-clad monkey who escaped from his Orlando home is in the custody of animal control. Orlando Police said the monkey escaped through a window Friday and was sitting on top of a wall near a condo building.
When passerby's tried to catch the monkey, he charged at them, forcing them to retreat to the street into oncoming traffic.
Authorities used a banana to lure the monkey into a cage where he was then taken to Orange County Animal Control.
Authorities were not able to locate the animal's owners.
