About 24 monkeys escaped from a zoo in Loffingen, Germany, local police said Thursday. VoaNews.
The monkeys fled from their cage in the Tatzmania Wilderness Park, about 140 kilometers southwest of Stuttgart, near the Swiss border. inform the police and the local press.
Initially, they were spotted by locals walking “in groups” in the Loffingen area. Barberia macaques are not considered dangerous monkeys, but the public has been advised not to approach them or try to capture them.
Eventually, the zoo workers caught them on the run. They were caught sunbathing next to some trees.
“It seems that the animals took advantage of the beautiful weather and spent the afternoon at the edge of a forest near the zoo.”, said police.
It is not yet clear how they managed to escape, but police believe that the construction work at the zoo gave the monkeys a chance to escape.
Barberia macaques originate from mountainous areas of North Africa, zoo officials said, and a small but famous population lives in Britain’s Gibraltar, where they are known as Barberia monkeys. They are considered endangered due to severe habitat destruction.
