In a shocking turn of events, a man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of several animals from the Dallas Zoo. The suspect, who has yet to be identified, is facing charges in connection to the disappearance of two tamarin monkeys and the escape of a leopard.
The incident began last week when the Dallas Zoo reported that two tamarin monkeys were missing from their enclosure. The zoo staff immediately launched an investigation, but the monkeys were nowhere to be found.
The following day, the zoo reported that a leopard had escaped from its enclosure. This prompted an even more intense search for the missing primates.
After a thorough investigation, police were able to track down the suspect and arrest him. According to the police report, the suspect tampered with the enclosures of the leopard, langur monkeys, and tamarin monkeys.
The zoo released a statement saying, “We are deeply saddened by the events of the past week and we are working to make sure that our animals are safe and secure. We need to make significant changes to ensure that something like this doesn’t happen again.”
The suspect is expected to appear in court soon. Meanwhile, the search for the missing tamarin monkeys continues. In a similar incident, 12 monkeys were reported missing from a zoo in Louisiana last week. Police are still searching for the thief in that case.
