Boise Zoo has Two New Monkeys

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two female patas monkeys, brought to Zoo Boise after a man killed a monkey last November, have recently given birth. Officials with Zoo Boise say D.J. and her younger sister, Kibibi, appear to be doing well.

One baby was born on Oct. 8 and the other two days later. The sex of the babies is unknown. The new mothers and babies live with the father, Incus, in a 1,500-square foot exhibit in the zoo’s African Plains area.

In March, 22-year-old Michael J. Watkins of Weiser pleaded guilty to felony attempted grand theft and animal cruelty in the death of a male monkey. Watkins was sentenced to up to seven years in prison, but the judge placed him on retained jurisdiction, meaning he could be released after a nine- to 12-month treatment program.
