APELDOORN, Netherlands, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Five rare monkeys were stolen from their habitat at a zoo in the Netherlands, police said.

A family of two adult and three young golden lion tamarins, miniature monkeys with a deep yellow/orange coat of fur, were stolen from their habitat at the zoo in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, DutchNews.nl reported Monday.

The animals were inside their portable night shelter, which the thieves removed after cutting a fence and kicking in the door to the primate enclosure.

It's the second time in a year miniature monkeys have been stolen from a zoo after a similar break-in at another nearby facility in 2013, police said.
