A mystery creature, which a student claims is a monkey, has been photographed in a public park.

Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park's visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight.

Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the "monkey–like" creature.

I remember once a gibbon escaped from the Ho Chi Minh City zoo.  We were sitting on a canal bank and watched it brachiate (swing from branch to branch using just its arms) from tree to tree along the river, seeming very determinedly to be going somewhere.  A few minutes later a swarm of police came running wanting to know if we had seen it.  They continued running where we pointed.

I don't know what finally happened; the incident never got into the newspapers.

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Of course it's blurry, the close up frame of just the creature is only a small portion of the original.

Unbelievably I think it's genuine. The same type of creature is reknowned from Staffordshire, care of Nick Redfern's book, MAN-MONKEY. A tree hyrax in origin imo. It looks very chimpanzee-like form the angle of the photo and might be a short-tailed cousin of the black dog.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

So this person decides to take one photo? Why? I would assume you'd want to get as many pictures as possible.

Looks like a monkey. Maybe it escaped from the zoo or something.

Yep, saw it, that's why I mentioned it.  Not sure what the original image size and resolution is, but if you look the posted image is roughly 615*639 px, and the box containing just the animal is maybe 58*58 px.  It is obvious some distance from where the photo was taken.  The animal itself is only about 18 px in height.  I doubt her phone has a decent zoom lens feature.
