Brookfield Zoo's 'Baboon Island' closed, faces wrecking ball in 2014
BROOKFIELD - Brookfield Zoo's Baboon Island has been closed and will be demolished next year after 76 years of serving as a home for numerous animals, Zoo officials announced Friday.
A new, as yet to be determined exhibit, will be built on the site.
On Sept. 12, the Zoo's last three baboons were euthanized for what officials said were "quality of life concerns." The Zoo's baboon breeding program was discontinued in 1992 , the same year the last baboon was born.
