LOOMIS (CBS13) – There is no large primate wandering the foothills Placer County despite a construction sign warning drivers to be cautious of a “loose gorilla.”

Drivers in Loomis saw the surprising message on a construction sign this weekend.

A prankster hacked into the electronic traffic sign on Wells Avenue and changed the sign to read “Caution: Loose Gorilla.”

The sign is now back to its original message and says “Wells Avenue Closed.”

This is not the first time a jokester has hacked into a road sign.

Earlier this year, an electronic road sign near Boston read: “Seek Alternate Route, Zombies Ahead.”
