Primates are wild animals and are not fit to be cared for as pets. Although Michigan has banned bears and wolves from being kept as house pets, state officials have not added primates to the list.

For some strange reason, when I was 8 years old, my mother decided we needed a spider monkey as a pet. It was miserable, angry, and consequently mean -- trying to always escape and biting anyone who came near it. Eventually it was relocated to the Washington zoo, but that experience taught me that there is absolutely no way any animal, other than those we have clearly domesticated for centuries, should be someone's "pet."

I couldn't agree more with Kamia, wild animals should never be held in captivity as pets. Such actions will inevitably cause mental and physical stress to the animal.

What is so astonishing ( and it is the same here) is that there are homeless dogs and cats everywhere and the Government allows primates as pets. Many people cannot look after a traditional pet properly let alone a monkey.WE have 20 ex pet primates here at the Sanctuary, some of whom were voluntarily given up and some seized by authorities. The whole situation is disgraceful. Some monkeys here are allowed without a license which means there are no checks on their accommodation or diets and the results are often tragic.
