LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Four animals more commonly seen in Africa went on the run in Texas.

The baboons escaped from the Texas Biomedical Research Institute, which does research on chronic and infectious diseases, and the search for the four was caught on camera.

Workers from the institute say they caught all four baboons, which are critical in research for heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

They were all seen by care staff and are doing well.
