May 8 (UPI) -- Residents of an Oklahoma neighborhood said they believe a monkey is on the loose in their town, and at least one neighbor said she spotted the animal.

Wendy Bradley said she spotted the monkey last week in the neighborhood around West 10th and North Wilson Avenue in Sand Springs.

She said the animal had the coloration of an orangutan, but a tail like a spider monkey.

"It scared the tar out of me," an unnamed witness told KRMG-FM. "It was a pretty good sized monkey."

Several other residents of the neighborhood have reported hearing a monkey's calls near their homes.

No photo or video evidence of the monkey has yet emerged.
