Thieves steal rare monkeys from zoo
Police are hunting across France for seventeen rare monkeys stolen from a zoo south of Paris over the weekend. The seven golden lion tamarins and 10 silver marmosets were taken on Saturday from the Beauval zoo by what officials said were "experts".
"It's an outrageous theft. These are extremely fragile animals that need specific care," zoo director Rodolphe Debord. Despite security cameras and extra night patrols, the thieves were able to cut through a glass window to steal the monkeys.
