NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Wildlife officials are investigating how a pair of lemurs got loose in North Miami Beach.
Julio Hincapie owns the two lemurs and says he keeps them caged in his backyard, but someone must have broken in and let them out early Monday morning. Hincapie helped capture one of them. Police caught the second after it jumped on top of a police cruiser.
One of the lemurs scratched a 2-year-old girl in the face. She was not seriously injured.
North Miami Beach Police Sgt. Richard Rand says this is the first time he's been "dispatched to a call like this."
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating.
