A truck carrying 100 monkeys collided with a dump truck on Friday afternoon, causing at least three monkeys to initially escape into Montour County, Pennsylvania.

The cynomolgus monkeys, worth $10,000 each, were on their way to a lab in Florida when the crash happened at about 3:20 p.m., 150 miles north of Philadelphia, reported the New York Times. No one was hurt, but troopers and state wildlife officials responded as the search for the monkeys intensified into the evening hours and temperatures dropped below freezing.

As of Saturday morning, all but one of the escaped monkeys had been found. Pennsylvania State Troopers Andrea Pelachick and Lauren Lesher asked that no one “attempt to look for or capture the animal,” tweeting that anyone who does locate the missing monkey “call 911 immediately.”

Cynomolgus monkeys are best known for being the first preclinical test animal for the development of the polio vaccine, according to the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center. Since the COVID outbreak, cynomolgus monkeys have been in high demand as scientists use them to test coronavirus vaccines before they are tested on humans, reported the New York Times. The shortage has led a growing number of American scientists to call on the government to ensure a constant supply of the animals.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is currently looking for the remaining monkey, reported CNN.
