At the San Francisco Zoo, a 2-pound squirrel monkey was stolen when thieves cut two holes into the mesh of the squirrel monkey enclosure.

The zoo immediately sprung into action after the theft, starting a search and officially announcing:

"He is a valued member of the zoo, and we wish for a safe and speedy return."

The 17-year-old monkey was spotted by a random person in a San Fran area park. Police quickly reacted and brought the monkey back to the zoo, unharmed.

So far, they have no leads on who stole the monkey.

We're just glad that the monkey is safe and sound, back with all its buddies.

San Francisco Saves Birds From Smashing Into Windows

Filed under: Legal MattersBirds

Birds

In San Francisco a Board of Supervisors committee has approved a plan to save birds from smashing into building windows.

They plan to require buildings to have treated glass or other measures to keep the birds from banging into them.

Architects and developers are not too happy because of the added expenses they will incur.

A rep from the Golden Gate Audubon Society said:

"It's not about being a nanny state, it's about being responsible for the impacts we have on the environment.”

Way to step up and take responsibility, San Fran!
