“After being declared healthy, the monkeys will be released into the woods. An alternative would be Thousand Islands,” he added.

Jakarta Marine Affairs and Agriculture Agency head Ipih Ruyani said that as many as 67 monkeys of the 83 monkeys it had rescued throughout 2013 were set to be released.

“We will release them on the islands of Tikus, Damar and Bokor [Thousand Islands] once the weather is good,” she said, adding that the remaining 16 monkeys were still receiving treatment for tuberculosis.

Previously, the Ragunan Zoo management had refused to accommodate the rescued monkeys, fearing that they could harm the other animals.

Some people suggested, however, that the monkeys should be exterminated; an idea that was opposed by the governor.

“Why kill monkeys we have saved from the streets?” he said."

Good news, thanks Kelly.

But will they be able to survive? Do they having living in the wild skills or were they captured and enslaved before they learned them. And how will the other monkeys in the forest accept them?
Here's hoping this isn't a thoughtless bureaucratic decision to just get rid of them this way. The monkeys deserve whatever is best for thm!

The poor creatures have TB and hepatitis- I wish they could be sent to a sanctuary for continued care, or I hope they will at least be monitored after their release....
