A stray macaque monkey that was trapped on cliffs near the Rock's Gorham's Cave on Wednesday morning was rescued by a Royal Gibraltar Police boat in the area that was able to get close enough to help get it down.
In a joint operation officers from the RGP Marine Section and the Environmental Protection and Research Unit (EPRU) worked together to rescue the young macaque which appeared to be stranded on the cliffs.
The EPRU officers were struggling to gain access to the cliff but an RGP rigid-hull inflatable boat was on a training exercise nearby and was able to take them close enough to allow them to rescue the macaque.
Sadly, the animal was found to be in a poor condition, after taking in a lot of water, and suffering from suffering from pneumonia. It died on Wednesday afternoon.
