Stowaway monkeys causes chaos on Royal Navy ship before jumping 80ft into sea

A STOWAWAY monkey caused chaos on a Royal Navy ship when sailors tried in vain to catch her so the vessel could dock.

Crew used a cargo net in an attempt to trap the mum and baby she was carrying — but she jumped 80ft into the sea to avoid capture.

The primates were last seen swimming towards land.

The green monkeys snuck aboard supply ship RFA Wave Knight at Bridgetown, 巴巴多斯.

Crew searched for them in vain and they were only spotted on the roof of the bridge, the ship’s highest point, once at sea.

Officials at Grand Turk Island in the Atlantic refused to let the tanker dock with monkeys on board for “biosecurity reasons” so the bid to catch them began.

一位消息人士说: “It all went wrong when the crew was trying to net her. It was really bad.

But she was doing doggy-paddle in the sea and her baby was holding on. You could see land.”
