Just one day after two emperor tamarin monkeys were kidnapped from the Dallas Zoo, the pair of furry critters have been found safe and sound, zoo officials say.
- The monkeys were located late Tuesday afternoon in Lancaster, stashed inside a closet in an abandoned building, police say. A number of potentially pilfered birds and cats were also found in the building, according to the Dallas PD. No arrests have been announced in connection with the discovery.
- The monkeys had been missing since early Monday morning, when zoo officials found their empty habitat had been "intentionally compromised." The disappearance marked the fourth "suspicious event" to occur at the zoo this month, police say.
