Mystery 'primate' spotted in a UK park

53 posts in this topic

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.

What type of camera were they using? That could be anything to a table to a dog...

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.

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.

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.

Definitely a chimpanzee. Look at its shoulders and knuckles

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.

The picture is so blurry that it could be a canine or primate. There no way to tell which it is.

A stool would also be a decent fit.

Apparently the English can't take pictures any better than we can, although they do seem to has a smaller graininess to their pictures.

Maybe there's black dogs and five toed chimpanzee-like cryptids too judging from these tracks just discovered in the USA are to be believed (skip to time=5.15)

Looks like it might even be a tailless cat to me. Cats will hop about some times and if they get wet, they look like they have long legs.
