Many monkeys come to us from poor living situations, where people simply did not know what they were in for when purchasing such an animal. Due to their social and cognitive needs, it is very difficult to keep a primate happy in captivity.
They need constant interaction and enrichment, and do not make good pets due to their dangerous disposition and this difficulty in meeting their needs. This is true for both household ownership and many unregulated roadside zoos.
Therefore, these situations often end up with poor welfare for the monkey, and sometimes the owners too.
