UPDATE: Fota Wildlife monkey safely returned to his enclosure after escaping earlier this afternoon
A monkey who had escaped from its enclosure at Fota Wildlife Park has been found safe and returned to its habitat.
The male Roloway monkey, named Valentino, made a brief escape from his home earlier this afternoon.
People who were visiting the park watched on as zookeepers tried to chase Valentino down on golf carts.
Park officials say he was never a threat to any visitors and was quickly coaxed into a secure holding pen before being returned safely to his island habitat.
