Chatham-Kent police are investigating the theft of several exotic animals from the Greenview Aviaries Park and Zoo in Morpeth.

Police said in a media release that the thefts occurred between in October and November 2021, when an unknown suspect, or suspects, forced their way into buildings on the property.

The stolen animals include:

  • a squirrel monkey.

  • a lemur.

  • red and lime green eclectus parrots.

The zoo is currently closed for the winter.

"In 38 seasons, nothing's been stolen," Brian Daly, one of the zoo's owners, told CBC News.
