About a year ago, a female vervet monkey escaped from her cage, and the zoo still does not have the necessary equipment to recapture her. She was pregnant at the time, and gave birth to a male who is now adolescent. Since then she has been hanging around the zoo, and conducting an affair with another male through the bars of the cage, and as a result she recently gave birth again. The whole family are doing well; in fact, they’re doing better than the monkeys who are still in the cages.
