Zoo keepers have discovered Bolivian squirrel monkeys stealing visitors’ sunglasses since the sun came out last week. The group of 18, who live in a no barrier enclosure, have been given sunglasses with bitter apple smeared on them today in a bid to stop them from being so light-fingered this summer.
