"Two of the monkeys that arrived on October 4 were dead in thier crates. That was not unusual, since monkeys die during shipments. But in the next three weeks, an unusal number of monkeys began to die at Reston monkey house."

The tone has a sense of concern and even danger to it. Although the passage is factual, there is a subtext of concern and fear.
