Officers at the San Antonio International Airport had a busy day Monday after a baboon escaped from his crate.

The baboon, named Dawkins, was on his way to a south Texas wildlife sanctuary from Boston.

When the flight arrived from Chicago, Dawkins decided to get a breath of fresh air and leave his crate.

The airport spokesman said officers were able to corner Dawkins in the baggage handling area and tranquilize him.

The spokesman said the baboon never came close to travelers during his escape.
