Monkeys Found Dead At Oregon Zoo

Posted May 29th, 2014 @ 8:53pm by Gale Cunningham

Oregon Zoo veterinarians are trying to determine what killed six of nine seemingly healthy cotton-top Tamarin monkeys.

Zoo officials say they were found dead in a quarantine enclosure Saturday, the day after they arrived at the zoo. 

They're awaiting test results to find the cause of death, and focusing on caring for the three remaining monkeys, including a five-week-old infant. So far, they seem to be doing well.
