Capuchins belong to the wild! Don’t have monkeys as exotic pets

You are hurting them and they might hurt you.

The private ownership of exotic animals represents a real danger to families, neighbors, communities, and the public at large, as well as to the animals themselves.

Not only monkeys suffer during capture and transportation, they could get sick or die due to lack of sufficient care or resources at owners’ houses. Monkeys could attack the humans or spread diseases to them.

Help us pass laws that would prohibit the ownership of exotic animals as pets.
Monkeys don’t belong in residential areas or cages!
