When I read about people in New Zealand I understand a lot of things our dear sister Mandi @Stormswift does and says. :lol2:




It was this man's girlfriend's birthday and he thought: What better gift than a squirrel monkey from the zoo? So he went there at night, broke two padlocks to access the zoo and the monkeys enclosure (wow, great security in that zoo!). Then he tried to pick one of the squirrel monkeys that were sleeping in a corner. What could possibly go wrong? :lol2:




"Your intention was to capture one and bring it home to your girlfriend," the judge said during sentencing.

"Your attempt was not successful.

"I don't know what happened in the squirrel monkey enclosure. The squirrel monkeys know. You say you couldn't find them and I don't speak squirrel. What I know is that by daybreak all the monkeys were distressed, two of them were injured, and you had a broken leg, two fractured teeth, a sprained ankle, and bruises on your back."

There's some witnesses who live right next to the Wellington Zoo - when my daughter stayed there they woke up to the  noise of monkeys in the morning - she said she didn't realize how close they were. Imagine the noise they would have heard that night?

It reminds me of a childhood song..


"Happy B-day to you

You broke into the zoo

You tried to steal a poor monkey

And look what happened to you..."
