Human assistance

Some organizations, such as Helping Hands in Boston, Massachusetts, have been training capuchin monkeys to assist quadriplegics in a manner similar to mobility assistance dogs. After being socialized in a human home as infants, the monkeys undergo extensive training before being placed with a quadriplegic. Around the house, the monkeys help out by doing tasks including microwaving food, washing the quadriplegic's face, and opening drink bottles.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Thats something i would want (without being quadriplegic)

mate - sorry - but why do you want a monkey?

monkeys live for a really long time and for most of that time they won't be fun, cute or cuddly - having a monkey is like having an extremely energetic and agile 3 year old around - they will be totally dependent and require constant supervision - you won't be able to go out in the evening and putting them in a cage is the equivalent to putting them in jail - and i haven't even mentioned shit - they will likely be frustrated and angry that you have them cooped up in your house and they could become violent.

don't get me wrong - i think it's cool that you have an interest in monkeys- you should look into working for an organisation such as a sanctuary or zoo - but wanting to own a monkey because right now you think that they are cool, is not cool.

Owning a monkey is just not cool, they are a wild animal and need to have the freedom to do as they wish and that is aside from the fact that they need other monkeys company as they are a social group animal and rely on other older monkeys to learn how to be a monkey.
Nearly everyone that has owned monkey have to either give it up or mistreat it to keep it within about 7 years or so because they simply outgrow YOU in that time.
If you condone owning a baby monkey bare in mind too that poachers would have most likely slaughtered it parent to get it.

It's simply NOT cool and it's not clever.

you're a downer man,obviously if i owned a monkey i would make damn sure it has a MASSIVE area to do whatever the **** it wants, and i wouldnt harm it or trap it at all, and if the monkey is up for sale in the first place the parents are already dead, so there's not much to be said there...

big meanie:p
