Two lemurs were captured early Monday morning after they escaped from their cages and one scratched a 2-year-old girl.
About 2 a.m., North Miami Beach Police received the call about the lemurs which were loose near 2049 NE 173rd Street.
“This is the first time I’ve been dispatched to a call like this,” said North Miami Beach Police Sgt. Richard Rand.
Regulars of this blog know that I refer to South Florida as the place “where the animals are tame and the people run wild”. This is why the call to the police was the first of its kind. South Florida cops are used to people acting this way, but lemurs…that’s something of a novelty.
But face it: if you were caged up and had to live with a bunch of South Floridians, wouldn’t you crack up sooner or later?
