It was not long after the mysterious death of an eagle and the escape of a female tiger from an American zoo, so that the series of mysterious incidents continued at the Dallas Zoo, as the Texas police are currently investigating the loss of two tamarin monkeys, and suspect that they were stolen, according to the BBC website.

And the Dallas police, in a statement, suggested that the two animals were intentionally stolen from the cage, without indicating any suspect or possible motive, and the statement indicated that these small white-mustachioed monkeys that spread in the forests of South America do not generally move away from the place where they are located. In it, however, the zoo searched in vain for them in the surrounding areas.

Emperor tamarin monkeys are often subjected to theft, as in a shelter in northern France in 2016, in southeast France in 2011 and in a zoo in Blackpool, Britain, in 2014.

The beloved eagle, “Ben”, 35, was found dead during the past week, and the authorities suggested that his death was not due to natural causes, given that he had an “unfamiliar wound.”

On January 13, the female tiger “Nova” escaped from her enclosure after deliberately cutting a section of the fence, and “Nova” was later found safe in the zoo, but the staff discovered that the enclosure of the langur monkey in the place had also been breached.
