Updated 9 a.m. Tuesday: This story has been updated to provide additional information on the baboon's capture.

A monkey on the loose turned the San Antonio International Airport into a zoo.

Sort of.

Reports say a baboon was running around the airport for almost an hour. The animal had been on a flight that landed at SAT and had escaped its crate as it got to the baggage claim area.
San Antonio Police told KENS 5 that the monkey was contained around 3:45 p.m. According to reports from KABB anchor Ryan Wolf, the monkey was tranquilized before being captured.
