The Levy County Sheriff's Office said residents in the area of County Road 318/335 reported seeing three monkeys Thursday and deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the animals.
Deputies, however, did discover a fence post with scratches believed to have been left by the monkeys and some hair that seems to have been shed by the animals.
Residents said the monkeys had discovered pet food in their carports and left huge messes.
The sheriff's office said Florida Fish & Wildlife officers have been informed of the situation and are expected to place traps for the monkeys.
