ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A gorilla statue valued at $5,000 was stolen from a poolside tiki bar in Florida, police said.

The 3-foot-tall metal statue disappeared from the Orlando Metropolitan Express last Monday.

Police told the Orlando Sentinel the gate to the pool area is left unlocked for the guests' convenience and there are no security cameras that would have caught the gorilla-napping.
