Sign Petition Telling Chris Brown That Monkeys Are Not Pets

Chris Brown sadly bought a baby capuchin monkey as a pet for his daughter. He posted a video of his daughter, Royalty, cradling the monkey on Instagram.

Many of Brown’s fans have been leaving comments letting him know they’re outraged by his irresponsible choice. As one commenter wrote, “No money or fancy house can emulate a habitat similar to that of a wild monkey.”

Brown could also be breaking the law if he’s still living in the Los Angeles area. Although there’s no nationwide law prohibiting primates as pets, they are banned in California.

Between 1990 and 2013, according to the Humane Society of the United States, more than 230 people were injured by these pets – including 70 children. Royalty should not become another statistic.

Besides being dangerous, primates can spread serious diseases to humans. It’s inhumane to keep primates as pets because it deprives them of their natural, social, physical and developmental needs.

It’s also horribly cruel, when baby capuchin monkeys are sold as pets, they are taken away from their mothers when they’re only a few days old. It can take months for the mother to get over her grief.

A capuchin monkey is a terrible pet idea. Please Sign and Share this petition below urging Chris Brown to give his capuchin monkey to a sanctuary HERE!
