A pet monkey has drawn the attention of police after the animal was spotted eating letters on top of a mailbox in Florida.

Officers responded to reports of a monkey roaming a neighbourhood in Sanford just after 8am on Monday, police said.

An officer snapped a photo of the monkey, later identified as Zeek, casually eating the contents of a mailbox in front of one of the homes.

Police also shared video showing Zeek monkeying around with a road sign and pulling the moulding off the roof of a patrol car.

“Zeek had a little fun with our patrol car,” Sanford police posted on Facebook.

Public Information Officer Shannon Cordingly told CBS News that officers are typically ready for anything but Monday’s call was a little “out  of the ordinary”.

“Our officers respond to some pretty serious, sad and horrific calls,” she said. “It’s nice to be able to respond to something of this nature – a little more light-hearted and have a happy ending.”

Officers managed to keep the monkey distracted with a water bottle until its owner arrived to take him home, police said.
