An infamous ape got loose in Japan, causing officials to warn residents to stay inside and lock their doors.No, it wasn't King Kong, but rather Lucky the monkey, who escaped her cage, again.

The last time Lucky escaped, she bit more than 100 people. So, when she got loose again Monday in Mishima, officials took no chances and warned residents in the area.

But Lucky's luck ran out Tuesday morning. Lucky's caretaker along with a brave passerby found the monkey and got her back in her cage.

The park said Lucky didn't bite anyone during her one-day outing.
