This baby monkey was discovered last Thursday confined to a small bird cage, lethargic, dehydrated and undernourished.The sales assistant said this one is not for sale as they plan to “raise” it in the store, but if it bites them again they would have to beat it some more – which led to its rescue from that establishment…The RSPCA had been called and they promised to investigate over the weekend.
