Dead Monkeys and Monkey Parts Found in Customs

Oh I just can't believe this story! I thought this was the United States and people here were "suppose" to be civilized!?

Monkeys and monkey parts used as bush meat to be eaten here in the US!? Gosh don't we have enough animals that we eat right here in the US? Cows, pigs chickens, etc. This is totally unacceptable, in my opinion. I hope there will be punishment for this.


A parcel containing two dead monkeys and monkey body parts has been uncovered by Customs officers in a Drogheda this evening.

It is believed the bodies of two monkeys as well as 14 monkey legs were discovered when officials examined a parcel in the Drogheda post office.

Officials from the Customs service are investigating the find.

It is believed the parcel was posted from Nigeria to a local address and that the monkeys were to be eaten.

The Department of Agriculture have taken possession of the monkeys. The Department had seized the parcel and its contents as they are illegally imported bush meat.
