Puerto Rico Ships Monkey to.Baghdad?
MARCH 6, 2009
The Baghdad Zoo rakes in some more animals. Puerto Rico is using it as a dumping ground for "nuisance" monkeys. Puerto Rico is eager to rid itself of the estimated 2,000 patas and rhesus monkeys that have taken a toll on wildlife and agriculture in the Lajas Valley since escaping from nearby research centers 30 years ago. "We We will give them all the monkeys they want," said Sgt. I am no fan of zoos, especially in an unstable country like Iraq.
