At first, STOMPer Dylan thought a cat was walking towards him, but after seeing its long tail, he realised that it was a monkey.
In an email to STOMP today (Jul 20), the STOMPer says:
"From far, I thought it was a cat walking towards us. But it looked weird as its tail was extremely long! Then I realised that it was a monkey!
"Finally I get to see the real thing which I heard has been roaming around in the Toa Payoh Lor 7-8 area for some time. Just nice I have my DSLR with me this time and managed to snap some shots before it ran away.
"Quite harmless I must say but you never know when they can attack when hungry.
"Thought of informing the police but what the heck, they would take ages to arrive and later have to give some description to them for something we won’t get to see in front of us again.
"Forget the trouble. If it must be caught, it must be red-handed. Hopefully someone else will be luckier."
