It has been pointed out that this is supposedly a family site, although I don't know just how many members below the age of 18 that actually spend any time here. If that's the case, we should be giving them good examples of our interactions with animals, and not "weird" examples. Hey, it's only a dog and a monkey, so I guess it's really no big deal as long as a few folks get a laugh from it. The line must be drawn somewhere else...
If you actually have empathy for the monkey, why would you leave this video up to promote the emotional abuse of the animal? Maybe I'm the one who needs some enlightenment that this is wholesome and worthy of a family website.
