Niabi Zoo is celebrating the recovery of one of its animals from a delicate surgery.
Keeya is an Eastern Black and White Colobus Monkey that has a cancerous tumor.
A zookeeper noticed blood in her enclosure in February, that prompted the checkup that diagnosed the tumor.
Veterinarians performed a hysterectomy in March that likely saved her life.
“We’re just so happy to see our family thriving again they are doing every well they’re nice and active and it’s just a really great relief in these already stressful times to have something just so positive,” said Laura Riggins, Animal Handler.
Keeya is now back with the rest of her friends.
