monkey

"Nearly all pet and captive macaques are carriers of the herpes B virus. This virus is harmless to macaques, but infections of humans are potentially fatal, a risk that makes macaques unsuitable as pets. A 2005 University of Toronto study showed that urban performing macaques also carried simian foamy virus, suggesting they could be involved in the species-to-species jump of similar retroviruses to humans."

These animals should not be someones "pet". They belong in the wild or in a zoo where they are properly handled.

This monkey should have been offered to a zoo before it was killed. Sad.
