Dogs To Tear.......Three Monkeys Dead After Dogs Break Into Baton Rouge Zoo

And I will visit them with four kinds, saith the Lord: The sword to kill, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. Jeremias 15:3
Three monkeys dead after dogs break into Baton Rouge Zoo
Three monkeys at the Baton Rouge Zoo are dead after dogs broke into the zoo in the early hours of Tuesday morning and attacked the primates as they reached out of their exhibit. Kaki Heiligenthal, the zoo’s director of marketing and development, said Wednesday that zoo officials are still trying to figure out the sequence of events that led to the monkeys’ deaths. But surveillance videos have helped them put together some of the clues. The monkeys that died were spot-nosed guenons, which are natives of Africa and are known for their colorful markings. The oldest was a 29-year-old female, while a 22-year-old male and 18-year-old male died as well. The domestic dogs were not able to enter the guenons’ exhibits, Heiligenthal said. But zoo officials believe the dogs got close enough that they were able to grab the guenons when the monkeys reached out of their exhibit, causing fatal injuries. Advocate Read More>>>>>
