“[S]ammy’s owner was sleeping in a bed with the monkey when he accidentally rolled over onto it.”
I–no, you didn’t–really–sleep with…SHUDDER. Creepy white-eyelidded monkey pix at site. A vid too, but I couldn’t look.
(Apologies for the non-clickable link. WP hates me lately.)
Monkeys are dangerous because they’re strong, smart, nimble, fanggid, disease-ridden non-domestic animals with thumbs. Insisting that more research and the removal of some of this animal’s teeth would have magically made it happy to live in someone’s house makes you the opposite of an animal welfare advocate, Ms. Jeter. No animal should have to sacrifice teeth to live in your home, and no person should ever let his guard down around a monkey. Even defanged, they will mess you up. (See the Pet Monkeys link if you dare.)
I’ll probably dream about this tonight and wake up kicking my cat. )-:
