Lancaster Church Leads Police to Missing Zoo Monkeys’ Home: Miraculous Recovery for Dallas Zoo

Dallas, TX – In a strange twist of events, two missing emperor tamarin monkeys from the Dallas Zoo have been found safe inside an abandoned home.

The monkeys, named Zuzu and Mookie, went missing on January 30th, prompting an investigation from the Dallas Police Department. After receiving a tip from a Lancaster church, police were led to the home where the monkeys were found in a closet.

According to the Dallas Morning News, the tip came from the Lancaster church which had received information about the missing monkeys from a family member.

The investigation is still ongoing, but the Dallas Zoo released a statement saying that the monkeys are safe and in good health.

The incident has raised questions about the security of the zoo, which has experienced a number of high-profile animal thefts in recent years. In addition to the missing monkeys, a vulture was found dead on the zoo grounds in December, and another monkey was stolen in July of last year.

The zoo has vowed to increase security measures to prevent further incidents.

“We are committed to the safety and well-being of all our animals and are taking all necessary steps to ensure that this type of incident does not happen again,” said Dallas Zoo director Gregg Hudson.

The two missing monkeys were returned to the zoo on February 1st and are now being monitored by zoo staff.
