JACKSON, N.J. -- A baboon is on the loose in New Jersey.

Police say they received two calls Thursday afternoon from people who saw the monkey.

One came from a driver who said the animal was near Interstate 195. The second came from a woman who said a baboon was sitting on her back porch in Jackson. 
The baboon may have escaped from the nearby Six Flags Great Adventure's Monkey Jungle. The park has 150 baboons.
