A man jailed in the theft of monkeys from the Dallas zoo said he’d do it again


This photo provided by the Dallas Zoo shows an emperor tamarin that lives at the zoo. Two of the monkeys were taken Jan. 30 from the zoo, the latest in a string of odd incidents at the attraction that are being investigated.

Court records say Davion Irvin told police that he jumped a zoo fence after dark, cut the metal mesh of a tamarin monkey enclosure and took the two emperor tamarin monkeys before escaping by train.
