Chris Brown Could Face Jail Time Over Exotic Pet Monkey

(ANIMAL NEWS/EXOTIC PETS) Singer Chris Brown is under fire once again after posting an Instagram video last month of his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling with his pet capuchin monkey, Fiji. The video prompted numerous calls to the California Fish and Wildlife Department from concerned fans, inciting agents to seize the monkey from the singer's Los Angeles home on Friday. Brown could face up to six months in jail for failing to obtain a Restricted Species Permit from the wildlife department. Aside from breaking the law, there are a number of reasons not to own exotic pets. Not only does it pose a threat to humans (you can never predict the behavior of wild animals), but it's also near impossible to reproduce the animal's natural habitat. The simple truth is these animals belong in the wild, not in the hands of children or celebrities. Read on to learn more about the controversy, and share your thoughts in the comments below. -- Global Animal

Dogs: Moody As Teenagers, Smart As Two-Year Olds
