Europe-wide hunt after rare monkeys stolen from British zoo

General May 2, 2014

British police launched a Europe-wide hunt on Friday after five monkeys, including three of a critically endangered species, were stolen from a zoo in northern England. Thieves took the monkeys – two female and a baby Cotton-top Tamarins and two Emperor Tamarins – from their enclosures after cutting a hole in the perimeter fence of Blackpool zoo on Tuesday night. The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the Cotton-top Tamarins as a critically endangered species with a worldwide population estimated at about 6,000.
