Abstract

In May 2010, a newborn ♂ Woolly monkey Lagothrix lagotricha at Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre, UK, was found being carried by the dominant ♂ (its father). Attempts were made to encourage the ♂ to return the infant to the mother but these were unsuccessful. Both parents were anaesthetized, and the infant was returned to the ♀ who went on to rear it successfully.
