Monkey calls 911 – and officials respond to California zoo

This culprit is bananas.

A Capuchin monkey at a California zoo dialed 911 on a cellphone, prompting San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office deputies to respond to the scene.

They quickly found that none of the humans at Zoo to You near Paso Robles had made the call — and eventually figured out that a monkey named Route was behind it, officials said.

“Apparently, Route had picked up the zoo’s cell phone... which was in the zoo’s golf cart... which is used to travel around the zoo’s 40 acre site,” the sheriff’s department said in a Facebook post.

“We’re told Capuchin monkeys are very inquisitive and will grab anything and everything and just start pushing buttons,” the post continued.

“And that’s what Route did... just so happened it was in the right combination of numbers to call us.”

Paso Robles is located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, about 200 miles from each city.
