Court Security Discover Woman Smuggling in a Monkey into Courthouse

Court security can sometimes find some odd things on people coming into a courthouse, but I doubt any of the officers were prepared for one woman who appeared at the Amherst County courthouse this week.

When the woman came through security, officers found this small monkey dressed in diapers and a white dress with pink flowers. The monkey’s name is Kara.

The woman was attending a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations court,, though it is not clear whether the monkey was a party in interest. However, the woman did insist on calling Kara “her daughter.” She insisted that it would have been abusive to leave Kara alone: “Well, would you leave your child at home? She has to be close to me.”

  1. It’s a baby. A 7 week old marmoset needs to be fed every 4 hours with formula. Since bottle feedings it wasn’t part of the woman’s comments one wonders if she knows how to care for the little guy. Srsly, buying exotic pets off Ebay doesn’t strike me as totally responsible.

    Likely an impossible ruse, methinks.

  10. I’ve seen quite a few monkeys in the courthouse. Some even were perched up high and swung sticks around.
