Pet Monkey seized and brought to the Detroit Zoo

The Detroit Zoo got an early Christmas present this year, in the form of a small monkey seized from a Southfield home.

Southfield Police said they received a call on Dec. 6 that a family living on Spring River had a marmoset named Pearl in their home. For the most part, exotic or wild animals are illegal within city limits, and while appearing sweet-natured, marmosets can be aggressive.

Pearl, who had been living with the family for three years, came to Michigan via Florida. The family willingly turned over the small monkey, due to a possible move.
