No one knows where it came from, how it got out, or even for sure what it is (or if it is)—but an animal said to be on the loose in Texas is causing a ruckus. The New York Times perfectly explains the current confusion in the Lone Star state with this headline: "Monkey, or Maybe Chimp, or Maybe Nothing, Runs Amok." Per ABC News, however, Texas Parks and Wildlife has confirmed it is a chimpanzee that appears to be running around the Santa Fe area. Sightings of the mystery creature have been coming in since Monday, with some people claiming it has been running through the streets and harassing people and dogs; some say it's even tried to grab cats. Patricia De La Mora was the first person to file a police report Monday, after she said she heard noises outside her home in the middle of the night and spotted the large "monkey" when she looked out the window.
Ghost of Harambe?

I happened upon ...
Orangutan with human rights to begin new life in Florida

An orangutan which spent 20 years in an Argentine zoo is being moved to a US animal sanctuary after being granted the same legal rights as humans.

Lawyers won a landmark appeal for Sandra in 2014, arguing she was being detained in Buenos Aires illegally.

The ruling found her to be Argentina's first "nonhuman person, with the right to liberty".

The 33-year-old arrived in Kansas on Friday and will undergo tests before moving to her new home in Florida.

While I'm not sure an ape should have human rights, I think they are sentient enough to have some subset of rights carved out for them. Ape Rights.

So where is Sandra going? She's going to the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida, not too-too far from the shores of Lake Ed. They have a very nice profile!
In the midst of the tropical forest surroundings, the chimpanzees and orangutans each live and play in one of the twelve large three-story high domed enclosures. The largest of these outdoor living areas are from 50- to 80-feet long and 34-feet tall. The habitats provide plenty of running room, climbing space and height for swinging through their environment. All outdoor ape habitats have a variety of climbing structures and swinging vines as well as numerous toys, tubs, culverts, and enrichment devices.

Reading the rest of that page makes me a little jealous. If they provided a couch, Netflix, and an internet connection for my laptop, I might like to live there. But are they legit?

The child who fell into that enclosure is very lucky that none of the gorillas bit his head off.

About five monkeys are on the loose on Cincinnati’s west side, including some seen swinging in trees at a cemetery overnight, police confirmed Thursday morning.

Police said they reached out to the Cincinnati Zoo to help round the primates up later Thursday at Saint Joseph’s Cemetery at West Eight Street & Enright Avenue.

Harambe: Gorilla photo to be sold as an NFT five years after he was shot dead
Harambe's official photographer Jeff McCurry took thousands of photos of Harambe over the course of 14 months.

The one being sold off is one taken on the day they met, when Harambe was first put on exhibit at the zoo.

It's been shared more than five billion times online, the organisers of the auction say.

"I considered Harambe a true friend," Jeff said.

"My many hours spent with him were always special and intimate.

"While I will never stop taking photos as long as I live, I know I'll never find a better subject that means as much to me as Harambe."
