The zoo said the patas monkey named Kyle also suffered a brain injury when it was caught in a net Feb. 28 for a move to temporary cage. The zoo needed to move the monkey to improve its sleeping quarters at the African Savanna exhibit.
The zoo says the move was carefully planned to minimize stress.
KOMO reported that the organization In Defense of Animals said the zoo failed to follow proper procedures. It has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
