“Complaints from residents of Monmouth, in Newport, to the City Commissioners relative to a number of monkeys being at large on that thoroughfare, has been turned over to the Newport police, and they are investigating.  It is said that three of four large monkeys are being trained for show purposes by a showman on Orchard St., and that he allows them their freedom.  It is said the monkeys climb about the houses, and, appearing suddenly at windows, have caused women hysteria.”  Kentucky Post - August 6, 1913
