Target: Jamie Crawford, Owner of Rainbow Primates
Goal: End the sale and breeding of monkeys through the company Rainbow Primates.
Rainbow Primates is a company based out of North Carolina that breeds and sells monkeys. Monkeys belong in the wild and not people’s homes. Nine years ago, the company sold a capuchin monkey to a family, and the stress of captive life almost led to his death.
First the monkey, named Jersey, became aggressive due to his confinements. He became just another annoyance to the family so they moved him to the garage. Now, Jersey was captive and alone. Capuchin monkeys live in large social groups in the wild. Being alone caused Jersey to nibble off his toes and start chewing on his fingers.
Thankfully, the family brought him to a sanctuary where he now is recovering and beginning to adjust to the life he deserves. Sign this petition and demand this company ends the sale and breeding of monkeys.
Dear Ms. Crawford,
For years, your company has been breeding and selling monkeys. This in itself is cruel. Monkeys belong in the wild, not in captivity.
Nine years ago, your company sold a capuchin monkey to a family. The monkey, named Jersey, became aggressive due to his confinement. This led the family to put Jersey in the garage where he was now alone as well as imprisoned. Due to these various stressors, Jersey nibbled off his toes and began to bite at his hands. Thankfully, Jersey was taken to a sanctuary where he is now adjusting to the life that he deserves.
Please stop breeding and selling monkeys. To continue doing so is selfish. If you truly loved and cared about monkeys, you would shut down this company and encourage a life in the wild.
