BangWall I'll send them an e-mail to try to persuade them to let her go to a rescue - I'm pretty sure there's a monkey sanctuary somewhere near there who will take her.

unfortunatly you don't need anything to own certain monkey's, and can freely buy them.
I know of some pet shops (not locally) that sell them for a couple of hundred pounds.

I had one a few years ago, but this one came to me through not being cared for properly and then went onto a sanctuary designed for her needs

I saw a similar ad on Essex gumtree, but when I checked back later it had been removed.

Many of the more common monkies do not need a DA licence anymore and many exotics also do not need one. Now you can have a pet Emu, racoon, porcupine and a great many more. Absolutely ridiculous Evil or Very Mad

There are LOADS of monkeys on London gumtree also at the moment, poor little things awful to think of them being picked up like a new hat by people who have no idea how to care for them. Also seems to be a massive amount of reptiles about at the moment especially bearded dragons.

Ha Don't get me started on the subject of monkeys as pets.... Angry Jump

The poor babies get ripped from their families, if they're captive bred......if not then a load of the adults will get killed trying to protect the infants......and then some of those will die on the way to their destination.

Monkey World in Dorset are the best monkey sanctuary in the world and they will take ex pet monkeys and reintegrate them into groups. Thumb Up
