ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) — A St. Petersburg Police officer had an interesting day in the field when she rescued a little monkey and dog during the same shift.
According to a tweet from the St. Pete Police, the officer first found the dog wandering on the street near 9 Ave N. and Tyrone Blvd N.
The pup got to ride in the back of the officer’s cruiser before he was sent to the St. Petersburg Animal Hospital. A few hours later, officers said he was reunited with his owner.
Later in the day, photos show the same officer rescuing a little monkey near 5th Ave N. & 64th St.
“Lil guy probably had a run in with a dog and was so scared!” a second St. Pete Police tweet read. “We turned him over to @MyFWC.”
The monkey’s owner has yet to be located.
