The risks of primate "pets"

Published 03/04/09

Carlie and Bob, independent animal rescue workers who have been together 21 years, have a difference of opinion about a 7-year-old Hamadryas baboon named Higgins, who spends a good part of most evenings watching HDTV in his heated monkey house, often holding hands with Bob. Carlie thinks that it is time to ship Higgins to a baboon preserve, and Bob wants to keep him at home.

Born Free USA maintains a database of attacks by captive exotic animals.
