The missing monkeys mark the fourth suspicious incident at the zoo this month. First, a clouded leopard escaped from its habitat after the enclosure was intentionally cut on Jan. 13. Authorities then found a similar cut at the habitat housing langur monkeys.

Finally, a 35-year-old lappet-faced vulture was found dead with an "unusual wound" on Jan. 23, the zoo said.
