Yeah No More Monkeys in Illinois Beginning Jan 1, 2011

I'm so glad to see that IL has decided to do the right thing and ban monkeys in their state on Jan 1, 2011. I just want to rejoice!!! What a way to start a new year. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of other states to follow. Florida and Missouri really need to follow their lead. Missouri is where Connie Casey-Braun that breeds chimps and monkeys lives and Florida, well, they just sell anything.
I hope they keep their word with the ones that aren't registered and take them away to be in sanctauries.

Monkey Owning Prohibited

(Springfield) -- If you're thinking about getting a pet monkey, you can forget about it in Illinois.

New laws start January 1st that bans residents from owning primates.

The law keeps you from owning chimps, gorillas, monkeys and orangutans.

If you already have a primate, you're fine as long as it is registered with local animal control officials.

Therapy monkeys are also exempted from the new law and the new laws also allow zoos, circuses and science labs to get new primates.

Another new law for pets also starts in the new year.

Pet stores will now need to give buyers a detailed history of animals, including their health.
