No More Monkey Business

Posted By on Fri, Dec 11, 2015 at 10:00 AM

If you've been dreaming about having a monkey around the house, you'd better get one today. Carrie Jung of Phoenix's KJZZ reports:
Keeping primates, like baboons and other monkeys, as pets will be illegal in Arizona starting Saturday. The regulation was recently passed by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission.

Officials say the main reason was a concern over human health and safety.
Good news: If you already have a chimps or other sub-human primates around the house before Saturday, you get to keep ’em.
