GEZHAI, CHINA – An alien monkey has taken control of a small village in China.

Chinese villagers first feared the alien monkey that stepped out of a blue alien spaceship (before it disappeared).

But the alien monkey, that Extraterrestrial experts believe is from Planet Zeeba, spoke fluent Mandarin and told the villagers that he had come down to help the Villagers.

Locals first panicked when Mao Xiping, a housewife from the village of Gezhai, in Henan province, central China, found the scraggy simian stealing cucumbers from her flat.

She thought it was a harmless rabbit, until she noticed it had an ‘alien face’ and her neighbors agreed it was like nothing they had ever seen before.

The alien monkey then spoke to Mrs. Mao and said that he had come in peace.  The alien, nicknamed Yao Bo by villagers, said he wanted to help the Villagers restore their farms to health.  The town had been devastated by a drought in the past few months.

A surly neighbor, Bing Zong, took snatched the alien monkey and caged in a washing basket and demanded that officers place it under arrest.

But Mrs. Mao came to rescue and brought Ling Bo home.

Experts were last night examining the alien monkey to make sure he was in full alien health.  John Malley, an alien expert on the U.N. Panel of Extraterrestrials, flew to China and confirmed that the alien monkey was in full health and that he was, indeed, from Planet Zeeba.

Mrs Mao, who fears rabbits more than aliens, said: ‘At first I thought it was a rabbit, and was scared out of my mind.  But when I learned it was an alien, I was happy.”

Ling Bo was elected mayor of Gezhai last night.
