THE monkey that escaped from its enclosure at the Nature Park of Argao town in Cebu has been recaptured.

Kent Rizon, head of the Argao Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO), said the two persons who were bitten by the monkey have already been treated.

The DRRMO earlier warned residents in Argao to be vigilant and avoid the Nature Park for the meantime following the monkey’s escape.

The local government of Argao also warned the public Wednesday, June 22, saying: "Palihog magmatngon ta ug kung pwede distansya lang usa ta sa Nature park kay duha na ka incidente ang nahitabo karong adlawa kung ha-in nanakit ni ug duha ka tao. Palayo mo palihog ug naa ang unggoy."

Rizon said people should not touch or tease the animal to keep themselves safe. (ANV/LMY)
