Multiple witnesses have reported seeing a large primate lurking in the streets of the southern state.
The creature, which has been described by some as a "monkey", has been seen on numerous occasions in the city of Santa Fe with one witness even claiming it tried to make off with a cat.
Another witness, Patricia de la Mora, called the police in the early hours of Monday morning to report that she had seen a large primate from her window after hearing strange noises outside.
"I look out the window and I see it was in there," she said. "It was a monkey, a big one."
"He tried to find something. He looked over there, then he looked over there, and I closed the curtain. I didn't want him to see me."
According to reports, officers searched the area for an hour but failed to find any sign of the creature, however the very next day they received another report from someone else living nearby.
"Just had a monkey try to attack me, while checking my mail," the witness said.
"I've spent the last 20 minutes in my car."
As before, no evidence of the creature could be found.
Residents have since been warned to stay away from the animal if they happen to encounter it.
Efforts to track it down are still underway.
