  • According to a statement from the SFPD, authorities responded to the San Francisco Zoo at 9:40 a.m. on Wednesday regarding a report of a burglary occurring the night prior. Upon arriving at the zoo, officers learned that it was a 21-year-old endangered male lemur named Maki that was missing and likely stolen.

    "Officers arrived on scene and discovered forced entry to the animal enclosure where the lemur was housed," the police department's statement said.

    Investigators have processed the scene for evidence and the burglary remains under investigation, according to the SFPD.

  • You do not ever hear about Lemurs as they are extinct nearly!

  • He's not just an endangered animal. He is an endangered old animal. It's not like there's a Purina Lemur Chow for Senior Lemurs that you can just buy or get off Amazon.

    Seriously what does anyone want with this thing? Eat it?

  • I HOPE this has a good ending. Awful disregard of the welfare of a fellow living creature, and an elderly individual of an extremely critically endangered species to boot. Please post any follow-up news!
