Shocking VIDEO: New Year Chinese lanterns BURN ALIVE, Kill ALL Monkeys at German Zoo, just 2 survive – WATCH

A German zoo has confirmed that its “worst fears have become a reality” after a fire destroyed an enclosure, killing almost all its monkeys.

Krefeld Zoo initially said all the animals had been killed, but later reported two chimpanzees had survived.

The 2,000 sq m (6,500 sq ft) enclosure housed rare Bornean orangutans, chimpanzees and marmosets.

Police say the fire may have been caused by Chinese or “sky” lanterns used to celebrate New Year.
