(WESH) A monkey that was spotted hanging out near a restaurant in Apopka, Florida is quickly becoming the talk of the town.

The monkey was seen near the Max and Me Jamaican Restaurant.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has been called, but there's no active search at this time, officials said.

Some neighbors say they want to see the animal captured.

FWC officials said nobody has been harmed and no damage of any kind has been reported.

Over the years, monkey sightings have not been uncommon. There are feral groups in the area, and some believe they're related to the monkeys brought to Silver Springs for film and TV productions.
