Well, at least this monkey has a very good clothing style :tu:

People bringing animals they shouldn't into the country is why we have pythons in Florida, killer bees and those stupid Chinese carp taking over among other things.

Sure, next thing you know our furniture stores will be overrun with small stylish furry primates.

So sad.  Poor monkey.  

If people must live with wild animals then they should go to their habitat and be accepted, or not.

It is a sad story, for sure... The owner was on local radio losing her mind, because she is having the animal taken from her.  The animal itself knows no other "mother", and will be traumatized from the seperation as well.

I feel bad for everyone involved, but because having a monkey as a pet here is illegal, all of this could have been avoided if the woman (a lawyer) would have obeyed the law.  But that being said, I find the law hypocritical, since you can own tropical fish, repitiles, and insects here, and even dogs and cats who's "natural" habitat is much different from the southern Ontario climate - think anything from chihuahuas to the Asian varieties to huskies far better suited to much colder climates to even those people who insist on having big German Shepherds or other large dogs in their 700 sq foot apartments.  None of these things are in their habitat, yet it is perfectly acceptable to own them.

From  what I heard about the owner of this monkey, she's an excellent owner, and the monkey is in excellent shape.  Given the above, that's all that should matter...except for the fact that it is clearly illegal, and should not have been done in the first place.

She has the gall to demand that? I wouldn't have the brass to say something like that.

I'm glad the little guy was nice and warm in the jacket and safe, but, monkey's shouldn't wear clothing.  Monkey's should be stark naked in their own fur climbing trees, screeching at the top of their lungs, throwing poop at the likes of us with their monkey buddies, and doing whatever that type of monkey does in it's natural habitat.

Best wishes little Ikea monkey!

I don't see the harm in keeping a loved pet with you and making it their habitat. A lot of cases of exotic pets are scary and sad stories of drug lords keeping tigers in cages and drug addicts keeping an anaconda in their basement, but to automatically assume a woman and her pet monkey is the worst case scenario is pure conjecture. The monkey could have been living the high life, happy and healthy. The only problem was I doubt it had a say in whether or not it would join the woman. Then again, neither do pet dogs, fish, birds, or even children. They're all 'enslaved' to the home and family they live with.
