It's a wild animal, damn it. It's not a farking pet.

Just get another damned monkey and be smarter about keeping it.
 
2012-12-20 03:03:09 PM
So, if she goes and grabs the animal it is hers because she would then be in possession of the wild animal and the sanctuary has no legal recourse. She seems like she might be crazy enough to go get this animal back directly, thus ending this foolishness.

"Nakhuda has no claim of ownership over a wild animal that is no longer in her possession," the sanctuary said in its response to her filing to have Darwin returned.
....
The sanctuary also claims that it now owns Darwin, arguing that unlike domestic animals, wild animals are owned by the person that possesses them and Nakhuda voluntarily turned the monkey over to Toronto Animal Services.


Your citation is that possession IS the law? So if someone breaks into the sanctuary and steals it, they legally own it because it's in their possession??

I saw the CNN interview with the sanctuary lady.

She seemed alarmingly grandiose and triumphantly smug about it. "GONE are the human clothes... and we've got him (in a cage) just being a monkey with other monkeys now".

Weird lady quote: "I know he cannot live without me," said real estate agent Yasmin Nakhuda. "And everyone who knows Darwin can vouch for this. He needs his mother like a child needs his mother."

Aww fark it all, I hate everyone in this story, but the money's awesome.

Because it's a horror story you identify with. She has no children and forced a monkey to be her perpetual babby. You're like "my god... that could be me if I don't have a family right now! If it's not a monkey, it's gonna be like 50 cats!"

"wild animals are owned by the person that possesses them"

This by itself is such a huge statement that I cannot even fully grasp the enormity of it.

Usually when you see pictures of babies, they are smiling or otherwise happily engaged. The monkey looks scared and alone. You're not looking to fill a void in your life, you're looking for a scared, helpless thing to heal and console. You want to be a nurse, not a mother.

Even tho this woman might be batshiat crazy, she has a point. Monkeys do bond with their caregivers to the point of a familial relationship. If the monkey is used to this woman nurturing him, he may get extremely stressed and depressed. Primates have very real emotions and attachments to their families. It is sad to see this one being jerked around by stupid humans.
 
2012-12-20 03:35:47 PM
Kinda scary though:
Almost all (70%-90%) primates born in captivity carry Simian Foamy Virus (SFV). It's a retrovirus similar to HIV, but slower to mutate. It CAN infect humans.. It's spread similarly to HIV, but bites and scratches are not uncommon when handling primates (especially as pets) so transmission to handlers is plausible.

It doesn't seem to sexually transmit as readily, there was some sort of study with the spouses of people infected with SIV which didn't find transmission but I suspect it was a pretty limited study.

There is no known illness associated with SIV in humans. It just shows up on a specific, obscure antibody test. But it's a really obscure condition and the possible relationship with another disease could be hard to nail down (took a considerable time for medicine to find HIV after observing all these rare illnesses and realizing it might be something transmissible). If there were a strain running around in the wild among people, we probably would not know that either, the test is too obscure.

From a previous interview, the woman said she would shower with him every day. Poor Carl. I suspect she molested him.

That Monkey is cute now because it's a baby, when it hit puberty it'll be an angry, unruly, face and genital attacking, poo-flinging wild animal.

If you want a pet, get a cat or dog for god's sake. They have been domesticated for centuries and they want human companionship.

These probably look like random words strung together, too:

Yet somewhere in the world, there's a news event that contains all these elements.

This. Then I was wondering if he gets to be a real monkey now, climbing trees or whatever Japanese maqacs do. Then I wondered if they make him run around without his coat.

She shouldn't have left him in the car. She shouldn't have had him out of the house. She shouldn't have had him in the first place. It is nice that she said they'd move to a place that allowed them if she could have him back.

I don't believe you. Maybe without "quasar" I'd buy it. Or even "Quasar" as a company/product name. But not as-is.

//Interestingly, when I Googled that to check, your Fark post was already in Google's database. Impressive.
