The case of the missing monkeys!

It's always sad news when monkeys are kidnapped!

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Concern for three monkeys stolen from an exotic animal preserve near Lee's Summit brought out people dressed in gorilla costumes at the Jackson County Courthouse on Tuesday.

Three pigtailed macaques were stolen in October from Monkey Island.

Owner Dana Savorelli said there is surveillance video that shows a former volunteer drugging the three monkeys, netting them, sticking them with needles and then taking them away.

The monkeys have been missing for weeks, and the mean woman who ("allegedly," for the lawyers) stole them won't tell where they are.

Thus the protests. Hit the above link for the video.

For more on the stolen monkeys, visit their home: Monkey Island.

It may not be Monkey Jungle.

It may not even be the better-known "Monkey Island."

But they deserve their monkeys back! Save the monkeys!
