Snow Monkey is attacked by other and receives surgery

SUAMICO - Neil Anderson shows us how the snow monkeys spend the winter months at the NEW Zoo in Suamico.

Zookeepers are trying to get the two male monkeys used to going outside with the female monkeys. The two males have not been out together with the females because it's a long process to have them get along.

There have been a couple of monkey fights this winter. One of the older females is in an isolation cage because of cuts across her back. She's had several different surgeries. Zookeepers aren't sure which monkey attacked her.
