Sponsor to take care of Billy
In India, many monkeys are thought of as pets, profit, or pests. About a year ago, we were called down to the police station. When we arrived, there was a little girl and her monkey in the holding cell! The monkey had been trained to steal people’s cell phones, which the villagers then sold. The girl and Billy were both released, and we adopted one of them. Billy came to our shelter and has proven to be quite crafty even when not picking pockets. Although only here for a year so far, Billy seems accustomed to the way of life at VSPCA, which he teaches to the younger monkeys who he shares a cage with. However, as with all our wild animals, we hope that Billy can soon return to his rightful home in the forest.
