Bristol Zoo loses rare animals after two fatal incidents

Bristol Zoo has lost three of its rarest animals after two fatal incidents, including one involving a male Warty Pig which killed its own baby.

In the December incident, the male Warty Pig also attacked the baby's mother. She had to be put down.

In a separate incident a few days later, a South American monkey was also eaten by an otter.

BBC Points West's Andrew Plant spoke to the Christophe Schwitzer, director of conservation at the zoo.
