Last years a lot of animals got stolen from Dutch zoos. Stealing animals isn't completely new, but the scale is. Januari 2015: 5 golden lion tamarins were stolen from Apenheul. The monkeys were never found back Throughout 2015: several zoos including Arcen lost their squirrel monkeys. In that specific incident, only one monkey was found, it had probably gone unnoticed and escaped. September 2015: 34 birds were stolen from Avifauna, many of which extremely rare and endangered, including hornbills, Hill myna, macaw and turaco. Someone them were breeding. Luckely , most endagered hornbills were found back, but in horrible condition, and atleast one of them, and a great blue turaco, died after being found. Januari 2016: the complete colony of bee-eaters was stolen from BestZoo. The birds were found back but they were starving. Marth 2016: a pair of black-throated magpie-jays were stolen from the same zoo. April 2016: 30 amazon parrots and two male hyacint macaws were stolen from Zoo Veldhoven. So you can see it is a real problem and mostly, small monkeys and birds are victim. What can or should zoos do about this?
