Three Homesick Grey-Shanked Douc Langurs
On 30th of December, three homesick grey-shanked douc langurs escaped from the semi-wild area at EPRC and managed to find their way back to the cage which was once their home.
In the middle of a meeting, we got a call from one of our keepers reporting about an incident where our langurs escaped. We rushed to the spot with just sweet potato, a whistle and a cage. What we saw was three grey-shanked douc langurs out of four that had been living in the semi-wild area hanging around on top of an enclosure and on the tree branches. Our tactic was to try and lure them into the cage using food and whistling.
