“A baby capuchin monkey is completely irresponsible to have,” April Truitt, co-founder of the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance, told TMZ. “This animal can easily live 30 to 40 years of its life. I guarantee you it won’t be in his possession that long. Instead he will begging someone like me to take this animal off his hands. It’s inevitable.”
Added Ian Robinson, vice president of the International Fund for Animal Welfare: “Having a monkey as a pet is a huge commitment. Appealing cuddly babies turn into troublesome ‘teenagers’ and aggressive adults.”
Bryant already has shown that he’s not afraid to mix it up with an aggressive adult named Greg Hardy, so I’m guessing the he’s not too worried about all these warnings.
