The monkey was kept in unsuitable conditions and is too small for home keeping.
Exotic lovers often acquire rare animals as pets. The problem is that few of them are serious about creating the necessary conditions for animals. Employees of the British Society for the Protection of Animals faced such a situation.
Tiny, no larger than a human palm and weighing only 100 grams, Tik-Tok is a cub of a rare or common monkey. He was rescued from the birdcage.
Animal rights activists were outraged that the baby was taken from his mother for profit and sold to people who had no idea how to treat him. Employees came to the owners of the Red Book monkey after a call from a caring person, from whose words it became clear that the monkey is kept in unsuitable conditions and is too small for home keeping.
According to experts, monkeys are completely unsuitable for keeping in city apartments, they are active creatures and require competent, professional care. In addition, they are very social animals and do not tolerate separation from relatives.
The mammoth socket is the smallest of the monkeys, therefore a ban was imposed on their capture and export, this fact made it possible to seize the animal from the owners. The head of the society, Alison Cronin, personally took part in the fate of Tik-Tok.
She came to pick up the baby and decided to place the monkey in a specialized shelter “Monkey World”, where a suitable pair of monkeys had already been looked after for him. Clydy and Ronnie also ended up in the shelter through the efforts of animal rights activists. The volunteers hoped that the adoptive parents would be able to accept and love little Tik-Tok.
Fortunately, it turned out even better than people expected. The kid, at the sight of his relatives, uttered a piercing cry and rushed to Clyde, immediately climbing onto her back. The adoptive mother treated the baby as if it were her own.
Animal rights activists have watched with relief and delight as new parents protect and care for their baby. By the way, Tik-Tok, who almost died from exhaustion, quickly recovered and now his everyday life in the family is not much different from natural conditions.
