DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Albany's furry visitor made yet another appearance.

The loose Rhesus macaque monkey has been seen many times by viewers around Dougherty County.

This time it has decided to pop up in front of an Albany man's trail camera.

His camera managed to capture a picture while the monkey was near a deer feeder in a 600-acre field off of 8 Mile Road.

The monkey has not been found.

Officials still want to remind people that if you see the monkey, do not approach or feed it.

If anyone sees the animal, please call the DNR Game Management Office in Albany at 229-430-4254 or after normal business hours call the State Operations Center at 1-800-241-4113.
