TERRELL (CBSDFW) – A primate with a hankering for Beaver Nuggets is wanted for questioning by authorities in Texas, and they’re not monkeying around.

Terrell Police say the little guy and his owner went into the Buc-ee’s off I-20 near FM 148 on Friday. While in the store, officers say the monkey accosted a girl.

Police say they’re not trying to put the primate in handcuffs. They just want to make sure its shots are up-to-date.
