GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – The Greenville Zoo says a baby Angolan colobus monkey died from head and chest trauma which led to a collapsed lung.

They think the baby was hurt when the mother, Nuru dropped the baby overnight.

The zoo said they don’t think the mother ever mistreated the baby. While in Nuru’s care she never let go of the baby for two days.

Nuru is doing well and they expect she will breed again sometime this year.
