The Idaho Statesman reported the Rosamund Gifford Zoo is donating the animals to be companions to a male Patas monkey who survived the Nov. 17 break-in.
The monkey's previous companion died of blunt force head injuries sustained in an apparent beating by an intruder.
Prosecutors said 22-year-old Michael Jacob Watkins broke into the zoo to steal the monkey, and that he beat it to death with a tree branch after the monkey bit him.
The Weiser resident is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
