No More Coats For Darwin The Monkey

For those of you who have not been keeping afloat of the tale of Darwin, AKA the Ikea monkey, you may or may not be happy to hear that his final fate has ultimately been decided. Darwin will remain in the care of Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary and not be returned to his "mother," Yasmin Nakhuda. Unfortunately for Darwin's fans, that means he also will not be returned to his shearling coat either, leaving him totally unfashionable.

I don't feel sad at all. She sounds like a rich idiot who wanted to fight having her pet taken away from her after she already probably paid a substantial sum to get it from the disreputable dealer.
I don't think anyone should own pet monkeys, but there are plenty of stories of people who really raised the monkey up like their own child and they not only never would have worried about the monkey biting them, but the monkey itself was rather attached to the person. By all accounts, Darwin barely even noticed the woman was gone after he was taken into custody -like most primates, if he developed a real emotional connection to her, the keepers would have noticed him going through a long period of depression.

hmph, I dunno whether to feel sad or not, especially reading the part where she purchased the monkey from a disreputable dealer, and even had concerns over it perhaps biting her.
