A monkey is a lousy pet, but still part of family
A Dublin, Ohio family’s monkey makes a lousy pet, but they still believe he is part of their family.

Ugh who’d want such a nasty, ugly creature in their home??
Monkeys belong in jungles!!Did you really just figure that out.
At least with no teeth he could just gum her while she’s sleeping.
I would smack that ugly thing into next century.
So sad. They had all his teeth removed.
Put a leash on him. He will be wild if you don’t
I wouldn’t have a damn little ape climbing all over the cabinets or wherever the nasty thing goes. People have more money than brains!
Omg he keeps hitting her in the face
This little girl knows b
Not for me …how long do they live
Having one of those things around would annoy me to death. Just wouldn’t have the patience.
She hates that thing
Who wants to change diapers for 40 years?
She has scratch marks around her neck. The monkey sure likes to cling onto her lol.
people don’t know how to fucking properly take care of them
I love how the monkey keeps interrupting her
We NEED A BAN!!!! What this woman doubtless doesn’t realize—or doesn’t WANT to realize—is that her monkey and his mother suffered TRAUMA with the separation. His mother died violently, there would be no way to take her baby from her. Which means their monkey, as an infant witnessed his mother’s murder (they share +95% of our DNA), and was pulled from her dead body screaming and crying, by animals he probably had never seen. Instead of his mother’s warm milk, genetically programmed JUST FOR HIM, he had some composite crap. Instead of his mother’s arms….well, you can imagine the trauma he went through. They are super intelligent. So they DO NOT FORGET!!
They just seem like annoying retards
He’s creepy looking!! No way would I have something that looks like that as a pet!! SMH!!
Notice monkey tries to bite her but has all its teeth removed. All that jumping around would drive me insane
They have taken away the dignity of this animal and as if that wasn’t enough, they also had all his front teeth extracted so that he can’t bite! It is a shame that it is still allowed to keep monkeys in America, in many other countries it has been forbidden for a long time and it is time that America changes this law so that more animals do not have to live like this !
No way would these things tear up a house. It would have some buckshot in it’s behind. The diapers look totally ridiculous!
someone please rescue this monkey
It’s a terrible pet because they aren’t meant to be pets and require an extreme amount of attention and work. They are a big commitment; otherwise they will do whatever they want.
Self righteous hypocrite. Now that we have our monkey and decided to keep it, let’s get them banned. One horrifying thing from this holier than thou monkey owner preaching to us about this is the following. Take a look at the monkey’s teeth. There are none. I have heard of this but never seen one before. They had all of that monkey’s teeth pulled. A monkey that is damaged and mutilated in such a fashion can never go back to the wild, and will not do well in a sanctuary. But hey – anything to make life easier for the owner – who then tells the rest of us that we should know better.
Os sickening how rich this family is. They also prob paid 7k(if not much more) for that monkey when they got him.. on another note Ashley is smoking hot.
If that ugly rat clawed, bit and slapped me..Id grab my bat and whack that little turd hard so he splatter against the wall. Dead rat.
Lovely TEETH CUT! 😁 ❤️🤗 Were are the lovely long Pointed canines of capuchin monkey ? Cutted!! This is LOVE 😍 ❤️💖💕💞💋♥️💖😘😍😘😘 😒
Brilliant seeing someone having such a thoroughly horrible experience as a pet monkey “owner” lol
I’ll stick with a dog or a cat.
Most people love their pets as much as their own children.
The point is there are no cure videos of adult monkeys because they become aggressive. So cruel to make them of babies
Correct. They aren’t pets
Spoiled…and thinks it’s the Alpha..
Wanted your undivided attention
It will get worse.
Oh there are millions of people that have them as pets, just like dogs and cats. What next we cannot have a pet dog or cat? Un real. Billions of people have had pet monkeys in the history of the world now all of a sudden it’s not okay? Bullshit!
Took you 14 years to realize that he us a wild animal. Yes the monkey is smarter.
Did you know kook the pet gorilla could sign? Koko never once said I wish I was in the jungle. She never once said she belongs in the jungle! Koko never once said it was wrong for other gorillas or primates to be in a zoo or as a pet! In fact koko wanted to find mate at zoo
Climbing on kitchen counters, gross? Practice hygiene.
Most baby monkeys I have seen are adorable. I’m certain … as they age & gain weight ….. They become feisty, and need more exercise, and a natural habitat life. That being said, it has to be a difficult decision, after more than a decade …. to give your monkey away! …. It must be very stressful, somedays … when the monkey is hyperactive! ….
Lady how in the hell you put up with that bull*** for 14 years let him go to be with his own kind
Monkeys are actually amazing pets or more like companions that you take care of. Monkeys are so much fun and it’s not irresponsible. They belong where ever they want to belong whether it’s living with people or in the jungle. You are a parrot, Have you ever formed a opinion of your own? Are you capable of thinking for yourself? Parroting what you hear on TV is not cool.
So wait?! Wrong was said a billion times, so why do they one? And yes, supporting the exotic animal trade (or breeding – dogs, etc) so why did they purchase a monkey?
And do you just take it to a regular vet? Does it stay in cage when you’re at work? Do you have a monkey sitter? How much do you pay them? I have so many questions, least of which is how did I get here from watching a live stream of Bernie Sanders??
Where are the likes
Slaps would be returned.
Animal abuse..wonder how his mother felt depression when they took him..
In cambodia these sick evil things use for views..monkey Judie is physically emotionally and sexually abused by his man and now he has her in with monkey Lily being tortured by other monkey’s he has over Four hundred videos I have written and reported and nothing happens
I would take a belt to it all day long
Well for starters you have the wrong kind of monkey to try and train as a pet, they are gross little farts but they’re not stupid, they know and learn as they watch. 😉
No need to go all Karen about this. If a person wants to befriend and co-habitate with a monkey he or she can do it.
He would be dangerous if he had all his teeth.
Okay but how well was he trained? Did y’all get him and do minimal training? Or proper training?
