‘Dizzy’ busts out of Massachusetts zoo, prompts two-day monkey hunt

Zookeepers in Springfield, Massachusetts, were in the second day of a monkey hunt on Wednesday, after a small Guenon specimen named Dizzy slipped out of its enclosure while a staff member was cleaning it. Officials at the Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center said the 12-pound (5.4 kg) long-tailed monkey “manually twisted open the door knob and let himself out” after the staff member exited the area to answer a visitor’s question. Officials just about caught the monkey on Tuesday night when a member of the crowd that had gathered to watch the attempt tossed something at him, scaring him off, they said.Animal and Pet News
