Kentucky Considering Using Anti-Social Monkeys For Inhome Care

Kentucky legislators may soon debate whether to allow service monkeys to  assist paralyzed adults with simple household tasks. A northern Kentucky lawmaker has introduced the bill at the request   of a  family that looked into bringing in a service monkey to assist   their daughter,  who was paralyzed in an automobile accident. The family   found out Kentucky  prohibits the use of service monkeys. “Like all families do, they were searching for ways to help,” Sen. John  Schickel, R-Union, said in a recent interview. “Monkeys do not belong in human homes, whether as pets or service   animals,”  said Sarah Baeckler Davis, executive director of the North   American Primate  Sanctuary Alliance.

She said monkeys are wild animals that need to socialize with their own  kind.
