Saint John police on the case of the missing monkey

April 25, 2008

Saint John police are continuing to search for a little monkey that was stolen from a local zoo on Tuesday night.

Staff at the Cherry Brook Zoo found a padlock hacksawed and a door kicked in when they arrived at work on Wednesday morning.

A family of Callimico goeldii monkeys were found running free in a hallway, screeching, but one of the small South American marmosets was missing, said Lynda Collrin, spokeswoman with the zoo.

It’s an unusual investigation, said Sgt. Pat Bonner.

“We don’t know who’s really responsible and we’d like to know who they are and what they are and what they want the monkey for,” said Bonner. “What the motive would be in taking a monkey is beyond me.”
