Thirteen monkeys killed in Woburn Safari Park fire
POSTED 02 Jan 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
Thirteen patas monkeys have died at Woburn Safari Park following a fire at the attraction in Bedfordshire, UK.

The fire started in the early hours of Tuesday morning (2 January) in the patas monkey house, within the drive-through section of the park, causing the enclosure’s roof to collapse.

“Devastatingly for everyone at the park, none of the 13 animals could be saved,” said a statement from Woburn Safari Park.

“All other animals within the jungle drive-through enclosure are being monitored, but early signs suggest they have not been affected.”

The park remains open to the public but the jungle enclosure will remain closed while investigators search for the cause of the fire.

The tragedy occurs just 10 days after a similar incident at London Zoo, where an aardvark and four meerkats died on 23 December when a blaze tore through the zoo’s Animal Adventure area, gift shop and café.

The cause of the London Zoo fire is also yet to be confirmed.
