I spotted this tiny monkey in a cage Undernourished frightened and lonely. As i approached he stuck out his beautiful hand as if to say"help me" He actually looked me in the eye as if to beg and then just remained motionless as you see him now. He is entertainment for us human beings. I was down right disgusted and angry so I left. Should you agree with this type of treatment please vacate my PF, I don't need your comments or votes, thank you.I suppose, I am a purist and believe wild animals should be in the wild and not locked in a cage. Even if he is the cutest thing you will ever see...

I do agree with you with all my heart. Wild animals should not be kept in cages. I share your pity and sympathy.

John, besides this being an excellent capture as usual ( again I say... you dont ever seem to take a bad photo) it has brought me to tears. Coming from South Africa we are so used to viewing animals in their natural habitat. Zoo's are like jails, but the animals have done nothing wrong.To think a human being would lock up such a sweet little thing like this is beyond comprehension. I beg you to take heed of his plea for help and contact the SPCA. SadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSadSad
