A KIDNAPPED monkey has been rescued from captors on their way to France.

Police offers stopped the car on the R-15, to discover a basket on the back seat contained a Gibraltarian monkey.

The French driver tried to convince the police the basket contained a dog and not an endangered species.

Unable to provide any official documentation for the animal, the monkey was transferred to the Acuarium Zoo in Madrid before being returned to the wild.
