Lucky is so cute. Maybe he/she is better off at the zoo in winter.

Errmm, am I the only one wondering why a wild animal with a habit of biting people didn't receive a bullet ?

Perhaps Still got lots of monkey business to do?

Park and city officials were too smart to be fooled by Lucky's clever disguise as just another macaque monkey tourist.

It really makes me wonder who is the monkey here -- I vote for the ones who can't keep Lucky under wraps.

Lucky's real smart, figured life in government-run nature park was better.

Apparently the poor ape is kept alone in a cage on view to the general public, and because of his notoriety is very popular. This means hordes of folk standing in front of his cage all day long, shouting 'Lucky!' and taking flash photos. His fur has started to turn white and fall out because of the stress. He needs to be introduced to a nice group of monkeys where he can fit in and be one of the crowd. Yes I know monkeys don't easily welcome strangers into the group, but it is possible.

Stupid people will line up and see the monkey. I think she should go back to her natural habitat!!!

Animals do not want to be caged !!!! They should let her go !!!!

This is such a stupid news! Hunt down this monkey, kill it, problem is over. Shizuoka has way many more problems, UNEMPLOYMENT etc...to worry about, not some idiots who can not catch a monkey!

Did they really catch lucky or was it a stand in? Lucky could still be out there...new identity....watch out people of mishima!

The keeper was explaining on the telly how he called, and Lucky came to him so he held on while someone brought a cage. Looks like Lucky has become pretty tame during his time inside.

I bet that's one lonely, lonely monkey.

A marauding monkey Just like a patient is "rushed" to hospital, monkey's "maraud". All the best media cliche's can be found here at JT.

Make this monkey a station master so this little town in Shizuoka can get some tourism.

Then plaster the "station master" all over NHK, TBS, Asahi TV, and CNN-J.

Make it pay back the quid paid out in taxes to catch it. This would the cute and easy way to do it.

Guess she missed being a Star, like her "human counterpart" who had been in the news recently - once out of the limelight, you realize how hard the free life can be, esp regarding to food and attention giving friends...

Lucky got unlucky.

A marauding monkey that terrorized resort towns in Shizuoka by biting nearly 120 people was captured Tuesday after briefly escaping captivity. The monkey, named Lucky, slipped out of a government-run nature park on Monday while a keeper was cleaning her cage. Officials raised the alert across Mishima City, where she attacked residents last year.

OMG! The monkey was "marauding" and "terrorizing resort towns" by biting almost 120 people while it was free! How horrible!

Wait... that's what happened ORIGINALLY. After the monkey escaped her cage, there was no marauding, terrorizing, or biting. Instead it appears she was just out for a stroll and when they found her she came willingly.

This monkey has been rehabilitated! She's done her time now let her go! FREE LUCKY! FREE LUCKY!

nanda, thanks for the heads-up.

SHE is one lonely monkey.

She is losing wildness. Once wild monkey is used to good life with food prepared by human beings, she cannot go back to nature. She cannot live alone. So, she was easily caught or she came back by her will this time. Pitiful monkey.
