Update: The @belfastzoo great monkey escape

So the monkeys have escaped and are having a great time running about the grounds of Belfast Castle!

Six lion tailed macaques went on holiday from the Zoo on Monday and have been running around North Belfast. Four have already been captured with two still having an extended break.

This video was filmed as one of the escapees was captured in the grounds of the Castle.

Loving the rugby tackle as well….


Another monkey has been captured in North Belfast after being tranquillised by Zoo staff. Poor wee sod fell, hitting a number of branches before a cherry picker was brought in to rescue it. We hope it hasn’t broken and bones!

One monkey remains on extended holiday!
