Macaques of various types can also carry (without showing any symptoms) a specific herpes virus which is damn near 100% fatal to humans if they catch it. So this moron was potentially exposing a ton of people to a dangerous pathogen, AND (judging from the monkey's enormous gut) doing a crappy job of caring for it too. No sympathy whatsoever.

Freezingprocess: It was actually a very gentle monkey. My fiance had met Nina a few times and often remarked about how sweet the monkey is.

The monkey's caretaker took the monkey to an event known as "Bark In The Park" where a lot of dogs were. The monkey was probably scared and bit a kid.

Also, my fiance says that the monkey liked to pull oreos apart and eat the filling...that is probably why the monkey is so fat.


You think it is sweet, but it is just a matter of time until it rips someones face off.

No one should be allowed to have monkeys.

Besides the morbidly obese part, my favorite bit in the article was where the owner was horrified that the monkey would be put with others of her species.

More than likely, that monkey will be stoked. She can communicate and play the way she is supposed to, instead of being treated like an obese toy.
My great aunt adopted an abused conure parrot. That animal was miserable and neurotic as hell living with my aunt for years.

My mom finally convinced my aunt to give the bird up to a lady with a huge flock of conures. The bird is sooo happy now.

The article said that the monkey bit the boy because it was being protective of the dog.

The fact that the "caretaker" fed the monkey oreos to the point of extreme obesity shows that she was taking very poor care of the animal, let alone being so irresponsible as to bring an animal she knows that bites to a public event with a lot of animals and small children.

I have absolutely no sympathy for the woman. Besides the fact that she owned the animal illegally, she had no respect for the public to be putting people in danger by bringing it out.

Monkeys are incredibly unpredictable and dangerous animals, they are not dogs or cats.

"Madison County Assistant State's Attorney Phil Alfeld called one witness, Madison County Sheriff's Sgt. Joseph Halbrooks. He testified that Hougland told him Nina had bitten her on several previous occasions, including a few hours before the monkey bit the child in the park. "

Yup.  That monkey sounds like a peach.

A good rule of thumb is that if anyone is keeping a big exotic pet(s) inside their house, that person is probably wacko and the animal is eventually going to become its own species again and rip their face off.

Well, it is against the law in Illinois. And I agree.

However, this story could be painted in many different ways. This monkey wasn't a problem child. It was friendly and smart. However, its caretaker did not exercise good judgement regularly and here we are f*cking fark.

No argument here other than I know from experience that Nina the monkey was normally incredibly docile and not violent at all. However, like all animals, when stressed bad behavior surfaces. And having a bad caretaker/owner invited such stress.

To clarify, I agree that monkeys should not be had as pets, but I don't think it is fair to demonize Nina. She was definitely not an evil monkey. She just wanted cookies and strolls though the local petco.

That monkey may not have been evil, but with animals like that all it takes is the right situation for them to DO something we regard as evil. That's why they shouldn't be kept as pets.

I agree, I don't hold it against the monkey. It was acting on instinct, it acted just like a monkey probably should.

It's not just monkeys, altho they are known for such things. It's any wild animal that people fool themselves into thinking are the same as domesticated species.

Macaca is a term used by George Allen to describe a field operative of his opponent Jim Webb during the 2006 United States Senate election in Virginia
