Summer 2008 - The Wild Times
May 7 2008 will be a date forever remembered by everyone who knew our dear friends Jocko and Mia (our spider monkeys). It was the day their enclosure was broken into and Jocko was murdered and Mia was kidnapped.
Jocko's necropsy indicated he died from a skull fracture - he was 17 years old, 15 of those years the Greater Vancouver Zoo was his home. Mia also 17 years and again 15 of those years were with us as well. Jocko was protecting his long time mate and his home. Mia has never been found, but leads continue to come in and we will not stop looking for her; we hope someday she will be returned to her home or someone will call us as to her whereabouts.
