Police responded to a report of an animal bite, and people at the scene directed them to a vehicle.

Police say they looked underneath and saw a monkey hanging from the axle of the truck. The monkey looked to be in rough shape and may have been attacked by a dog, police say.

Officers decided to call BARC to coax the monkey out.

"Me and my partner, we were talking about possibly getting the monkey out ourselves. But due to him already biting somebody, we didn’t want anything further to happen. So we just let the experts take care of that part," said HPD Officer Jesse Rodriguez.
