The final monkey has been captured.

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Nine monkeys who escaped from cages at an Oregon Health & Science University campus have been recaptured, OHSU officials said Saturday.
The group of monkeys escaped when a caretaker cleaned an outdoor cage that housed the monkeys, said Jim Newman, an OHSU spokesman.
“One of our cage cleaners accidentally left a lock off a cage,” Newman said. “The cage was closed; however, the animals were able to slide the door open and get out.”
Of the nine monkeys that escaped, Newman said four monkeys were quickly captured. A fifth was caught Friday night and three more were captured by Saturday night.
The final monkey was captured at 2 p.m. Sunday on the OHSU primate center campus.
The monkeys were seen Friday along the south edge of the university’s west campus on Southwest 185th Street in Beaverton — an area near the MAX light-rail line.
