Missing Macaque Captured

Animal’s fate unknown …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Bradley – the 15-year-old Japanese macaque whose escape earlier this week made national news – has been captured in the South Carolina Lowcountry.

According to a news release from Colleton County’s animal services division, “attempts to capture Bradley were successful,” per the missing primate’s owner.

What fate befell the animal? That’s not immediately clear …

Bradley had been running wild through the streets of Walterboro, S.C. for the last four-and-a-half days, prompting a city-wide ape-hunt on behalf of its owner, a local funeral home director.

“The outpouring of concern and information from Colleton County residents has been overwhelming and we are thankful for the public’s support in helping to locate Bradley,” the statement from animal services director Laura Clark noted.



This is a developing story … please check back for updates.
