Zoo monkeys escape into food shop

June 15, 2017

Two monkeys escaped from their enclosure at Marwell Zoo in Winchester, UK.

The monkeys made a bee-line for the zoo food shop!

Keepers at Marwell Zoo barricade visitors inside buildings while they captured the macaques monkeys.  Macaques monkeys can be aggressive and dangerous if they feel threatened.

Zoo keepers trapped the monkeys in the food shop and they were retrieved and returned to their enclosure shortly after they escaped.

No one was hurt and an investigation by the zoo is under way.

Monkeys are generally kept in closed roof cages because they are excellent climbers
