ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) — A police officer in St. Petersburg, Florida, had an interesting day in the field over the weekend when she rescued a monkey and dog during the same shift.
According to a tweet from the St. Pete Police on Sunday, Jan. 16, the officer first found the dog wandering on a local street.
The pooch got to ride in the back of the officer’s cruiser before he was sent to the St. Petersburg Animal Hospital. A few hours later, officers said he was reunited with his owner.
Later in the day, photos show the same officer rescuing a little monkey that had been injured.
“Lil guy probably had a run in with a dog and was so scared!” St. Pete Police tweeted. “We turned him over to @MyFWC.”
The monkey’s owner had not been located as of Sunday.
