On Monday, Feb. 11, a monkey was stolen from the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society in Florida in the early hours of the morning.

A post on the West Palm Beach Police Department’s Facebook page states, “We need your help finding Kali! She was stolen from the Palm Beach Zoo shortly after 1:00 a.m., this morning.”

Kali is a 12-year-old Goeldi’s monkey that only weighs about 1 pound.

Luckily, a post on the Palm Beach Zoo Facebook announced that Kali has been returned safe and sound with the help of the police department.

In the post, Margo McKnight, Zoo President and CEO, says, “We are grateful for the tenacious and passionate detectives and police officers involved in our case.”

McKnight also says that Kali—who suffers from inflammation—is doing well but is being closely monitored by their team. She says, “Kali is doing well considering she has been without her medication for days.”

McKnight also says that their goal is to ensure her health so that she can be reunited with her mate, Quito.
