Yeah, so I guess some guy in North Augusta has a baboon on display? And PETA isn’t too happy about it.
They’re far politer than they’re depicted in pop culture, though! I mean, they literally say
Bonner has applied to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for a license to exhibit Bobo. Please write polite letters to the USDA and ask the agency to deny Bonner a license.
Assuming that the information in PETA’s press release is true*, then that baboon really shouldn’t be at a pet store.
To be honest, I don’t like most of the pet stores I’ve seen, with these little two foot, brightly lit windows where animals lie around depressed all day. The worst one by far is the one in Augusta Mall. Those cages are tiny. I can’t stand to even go in there.
Update 6/24 10:38am: PETA has written another article, which makes Bonner out to be unreasonable and greedy. Bleh :>
