April 12th – Barbary Macaque Zatoute ’saved’ from circus
Female Barbary Macaque Zatoute lived over 11 years of her life with a private owner in his house. The local visited a Belgian circus, where he saw the chained Zatoute. He bought her on site and took her home.
Eventually the private owner came to his senses and realized a home is no suitable environment for a social animal. He agreed to hand Zatoute over to the care of AAP and on the 12th of April we welcomed her to Almere.
After her time in the quarantine department, she can start a bright future...
