The Hale County Sheriff's Office says they are searching for at least one gorilla. A gorilla was last spotted near a store on County Road 61 in Newbern.

A dispatcher with the Sheriff's Office said a crew consisting of the Newbern Volunteer Fire Department, police department, as well as Sheriff's deputies were searching for the animal.

Currently, it is unknown how many are loose or in what direction they are headed.

If there's never a follow-up story about how a stray gorilla (!) was recovered, I will be forced to conclude this was a monster sighting.

Hale County SO: Gorilla report unfounded

A group of R.C. Hatch High School students caused a national news frenzy with reports of a gorilla sighting near Newbern this weekend.

A group of baseball players headed back to Uniontown from a game phoned 911 at approximately 7:30 p.m. Saturday reporting to having seen a gorilla at the intersection of Highway 61 and County Road 20 in Newbern.

The Hale County Sheriffs Office, inundated with calls from news agencies around the country, released a statement Tuesday saying that they took the report and subsequent investigation seriously as part of protocol.

Deputies responded and checked the area, the release stated. No gorilla or other large primate was located. The Hale County Sheriffs Office answers all calls for service in a professional and serious manner. This call, like all others, was investigated and until further evidence is discovered we consider this matter to be unfounded.

Reads like something out of Project Blue Book. Nothing to see here folks.
