With a courthouse there are many police officers all of the time, why did they allow her to leave before they found out if she had the proper licenses and permits and the monkey was allowed in the state and the county. I have to wonder where people minds are.
Authorities said a woman entered the Amherst County courthouse this morning with a tiny monkey tucked into her bra, dressed in diapers and a white dress with pink flowers.
The woman was not identified, but officials confirmed the incident — from Commonwealth’s Attorney Stephanie Maddox to deputies who were working in the courthouse.
“You couldn’t make up something like this,” Maddox said.
The woman had arrived for a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations court, officials said.
They had no idea that she had the monkey — a female named “Kara” — until she went into an office to fill out routine, court-related paperwork.
When the woman referred to a daughter, a puzzled official asked where the daughter was. That’s when she pulled the monkey, only inches tall, out of her bra.
She referred to it as “her daughter,” said she had purchased it on eBay and that she had the creature’s clothes specially made in West Virginia.
Court officials were stunned when tiny Kara moved her head, waving a hand and began gnawing on the dress.
One official asked why the woman had the monkey in her bra and quoted her as saying, “Well, would you leave your child at home? She has to be close to me.”
Asked who let the monkey through the metal detector, a deputy quipped: “It wasn’t armed.”
