APTOPIX Colombia Animals
A 15-day-old night monkey is feed by a veterinarian at a temporary shelter west of Bogota, Colombia, Monday, Feb. 18, 2013. Sponsored by Bogota's Ministry of Environment, the shelter receives between 3,000 and 3,500 wild animals a year; some seized from poachers and others found hurt. An estimated $560,000 U.S. dollars are spent in the recovery and care of these animals. Seventy percent of rescued animals are reintroduced to their habitat and the remaining 30% are sent to zoos around the country. (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara)
