A man snuck a monkey onto an airplane. He put the little monkey under his hat until passengers saw it sitting on his ponytail.

On a flight from Florida to New York, people around the man noticed that a marmoset had come out from under the man's hat. The man's journey had begun in Lima, Peru.

"Other passengers asked the man if he knew he had a monkey on him," said Alison Russell, who works for the airline.

The monkey spent the rest of the flight in the man's seat and behaved well. Ms. Russell didn't know how security guards weren't able to find the monkey before it got on the plane.

Airport police were waiting for the man and his monkey when the plane landed. It's not clear if the man will get in trouble.

The monkey seems healthy. It might end up in a zoo.

一位男子偷偷地把一隻猴子帶上了飛機。他把這隻小猴子藏在他的帽子下面,直到其他乘客發現了牠坐在他的馬尾辮上。

在從佛羅里達飛往紐約的途上,這位男子周圍的乘客察覺到有一隻侏儒狨猴從他的帽子裡跑了出來。這位男子是從祕魯首都利馬出發。

航空公司人員艾利森.羅素說:「其他乘客問他是否知道有一隻猴子坐在他身上。」

這隻猴子整趟旅途都很安分地坐在這個男子的位置上。羅素小姐不知道為什麼機場安檢人員沒有發現牠被帶上飛機。

飛機著陸後,機場警察都已在等候這位男子和猴子。這位男子是否會因此惹上麻煩還不是很清楚。

這隻猴子看起來似乎很健康,有可能會被送到動物園。(翻譯:楊鴻泰)
