Zoo Boise to get 2 new monkeys after animal killed

BOISE, Idaho -- Officials with Idaho's Zoo Boise said a zoo in Syracuse, New York is donating two female Patas monkeys to take the place of an animal killed during a November break-in.
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.
