Police in suburban Detroit seize exotic animals from garage after 1 wanders neighborhood

WARREN, Mich. — Police in suburban Detroit have seized a number of exotic animals including ring-tailed lemurs after one of the rare mammals was spotted roaming in a neighborhood.

The Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak said Thursday that it’s carrying for the 30 animals rescued the previous day in Warren.

The zoo says the animals include two ring-tailed lemurs, two white-nosed coatis and three fennec foxes.

The zoo says an animal control officer captured a coati in a Warren neighborhood, leading to the discovery of the other animals in a garage.

Mammal curator Elizabeth Arbaugh says in a statement that the animals were being kept in deplorable conditions but says they seem to be in relatively good health considering the environment in which they’d been living.
