The Monkeys Murdered to Fill America's Zoos
A rare exposé of the illegal trade in endangered animals, shipped to order from Congo to American zoos. Conservationist Karl Amman followed one consignment of monkeys every stage of the way.
It was described as; "the biggest shipment of primates that has ever come out of the Congo". Of the 100 monkeys exported, 34 went to the United States. The zoos claim these monkeys were rescued from the bush meat trade but the paperwork suggests they were probably caught to order and illegally exported.FULL SYNOPSIS
