Boy, that guy was a fool! Here's another moron playing with fire. When it's time I suspect he won't just end up with bitten fingers and an ear.



But Brutus is soooo cuddlewee! The guy's final words are "They live to be 40. It's so nice that I get to live the rest of my life with my best friend." Yeah, you probably will.

Just be glad no one has ever crossed a squirrel with a pit bull.

I don't mind sharing my squirrel bandwidth with a splinter group of Monkey-Attack Survivors and Victims of Monkey Phobia

That Grizzly bear "owner" is a total f*#king dumbsh#t, though. He's got Oprah brainwashed. Someday that dope is going to get eaten by that Grizzly bear and then he will be crapped right out of that bear's anus.

Hahaha! Excellent visual Toadgas.

You'd think he'd learn by how Grizzly Man's life ended. Chomp chomp chomp.

I'm still a little stupefied as to why they are even allowed to be pets?

If said monkeys are lab rescues then perhaps 'pet' is a misnomer but would
you not make an exception for them?

Rescues should not be kept as pets, but on a wildlife refuges. Doubt there is enough of such places though.

We have a wildlife sanctuary near Boulder - full of mostly tigers. There are also panthers, lions, camels and other assorted critters that had been pets. There are more live tigers living in the state of Texas than there are in the native lands now! Stupid pet trade.

(All the while acknowledging that I have some Lilac Crowned Parrots. While all of mine, except Henri, were born in my home, I still believe their proper place is the wild. Sadly, their wild environment have been decimated, and the captive bred ones cannot be released. It'd be certain death).

Well, Crimps, in my friend's case those monks were in effect at a rescue
facility. Especially seeing as how David had done post-grad research on the
nasties* and actually made no effort to domesticize them. The only times he
handled them were when they bolted and then it got ugly - welder's gloves
only diminished the carnage!

* In the wilds of Peru. He was not associated with the lab that had used them.

It started as teaching a squirrel to catch. Took a bit but he learned after many beaners. Then he ate from my hand. Then he was caught with blue berry pie all over his now purple face; hence his name blueberry. But after he became familiar with my kitchen cabinets and ate all my food when I was out, I had to administer the tuff (squirt gun) love.

DON'T ENCOURAGE THEM!

Rescue facility sounds good too.

I just strongly believe they shouldn't live in a house and be treated like a pet - dressed up in frilly outfits, roaming freely in a home, put on a leash to take into public, etc.

I think we are on the same page about that, no?

One of the press clippings on that monkey site was about some disabled person that had a trained helper monkey(!) Of course the guy took it out in public and it bit a kid.

British animal liberation activists break into a laboratory in Cambridge and are caught by a scientist while trying to free some chimpanzees being used for medical research. Despite the warnings of the chief scientist that the chimps are infected with a virus dubbed "Rage", which he claims is highly contagious and only takes one bite to spread, the activists open the cages anyway and release the chimpanzees. A chimp attacks a female activist and immediately infects her, and she in turn infects the other members of the group, including the chief scientist when he attempts to kill her.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Seems like there is a high prevalence of the use of chimps being associated with viruses, rage, and zombie movies.

Dirka...

it just takes a little blueberry pie to turn a squirrel purple? After I've spent 4 years fussing with their nucleotides?

Toadgas...

I assure you that my squirrel was purple due to the pie that I tossed him!

Your science is beyond my trader joes.

Oh, Crimpie, we are most certainly in agreement. If'n you can't handle 'em
for their own good with welder's gloves then you ain't gonna dress 'em in
no kinda outfit. ;-)

vvvv

Don't know much about zombie movies...

but it was said that HIV came to Europe via a Danish construction worker who coaxed a chimpanzee into making love to him.
