Authorities were in pursuit of a monkey that escaped from the Haif Kef zoo in Rishon Lezion on Tuesday morning, police reported.

Search teams located the primate in the area of the central city's Nurit Street, as local authorities and veterinarians were notified of the incident.

The monkey was later tranquilized in order to be transported back to the zoo.
