United States, in yellow for the mysterious disappearances and deaths of animals at the Dallas Zoo

First the death of Pin, the eagle mascot. Then the escape of a rare cloudy tiger, and finally the disappearance of two of the Emperor’s tamarin monkeys. It’s yellow at the Dallas Zoo, where a series of mysterious animal deaths and disappearances are being investigated. “It is clear that the containers were intentionally damaged,” the zoo wrote on Twitter.

Investigations are ongoing

The fact that this theft is underlined is the fact that emperor tamarin monkeys, native to the jungles of South America, generally don’t stray far from their “home”. This species is often poached: it happened twice in France in 2011 and 2016 and in the UK in 2014, from Blackpool Zoo. After 32 years at the facility, Pin, the 35-year-old eagle who became the Dallas Zoo’s mascot, was found dead last week. The bird had an “atypical wound” for which park authorities have ruled out a natural cause of death and offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who provides information useful for identifying the killer. On January 13, again from the Dallas Zoo, a blunted tiger escaped through a deliberately opened crack in its enclosure. The cats were found after a massive swarming also conducted using infrared police drones, while zoo staff thwarted another escape of some Asian monkeys, whose cages were smashed.
