Police are searching for a man whose monkey allegedly bit a girl at a Buc-ee’s in Terrell, Texas last week.

According to NBC DFW, the man was carrying a monkey on his shoulder when he walked into the North Texas store on Friday afternoon, and the monkey proceeded to bite a girl. Police have said they want to make sure the monkey’s shots are up to date.

The Terrell Police Department shared a surveillance photo of the man and the monkey in the hopes somebody would recognize him.
