HELP! Monkeys Imprisoned in Montana Store

Jack’s Pet Center in Great Falls, Mont., reportedly keeps six capuchin monkeys on display, cruelly confined to a tiny, depressing cell with no enrichment.

Jack's Pet Center monkeys Jack's Pet Center monkeys

Capuchin monkeys are undomesticated animals, meaning that their wild instincts are still intact. They’re notoriously high-strung and easily stressed, and when confined, they’re subjected to bizarre stimuli that they’re not used to and people (whom they would naturally avoid) crowding around them—all without means of escape. Deprived of mental stimulation, exercise, and the opportunity to exist as nature intended, they can develop neurotic and self-destructive behaviors.

PETA asked the store’s owners to allow us to find a sanctuary where these animals can live in a more natural environment, but we were denied.

Tell Jack’s Pet Center to do right by the monkeys and retire them to a sanctuary!

    ‘It is absolutely horrendous what you’re putting these animals through. Why are you holding them captive? This is inhumane and heartbreaking . Please let these wonder fink animals free so they can live a happy life in their natural environment. I can’t even imagine his sad they must feel being trapped all day! You should be ashamed of yourselves. Do the right thing and give these animals a chance at life.’

    “I’ve been made aware that you are keeping monkeys in a small enclosure and charging money to let them eat.
    This is so sad. As long as you continue to mistreat these monkeys you are not a “pethelper’ by any means. Just a hypocrite.
    Give them to a sanctuary. Somewhere they can be free and will be taken care of properly.
    If you need help finding one you can phone animal organizations for help.

    You might be benefiting from these monkeys but they are obviously suffering because of you.
    We can change that though.”

    Sent but I got the message “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently.” We must have made an impact :)

    People have to pay for the animals to eatt? This is sick. You’re holding them captive and trying to raise money by withholding food…

    This is so upsetting… if I lived anywhere near them then I would be saving up all my pocket money and buying them the fruit (as it says $1 on the sign on the window) until they get moved.
    This is abuse…

    So I just sent an email, and I will call as soon as my cold is gone, and I can talk. This is sooo wrong, and absolutly inhumane! Give these monkeys to Peta2! They will take care of them the right way! Please find it in your heart to let these animals be free from torture.

    They’re not meant to be confined into a small area.. they’re wild animals, and they’re now surrounded by brick walls. Let them be, and just retire them already.

    those poor monkeys have been there as long as I can remember. They won’t give them up. And they’ve had babies and I’m not sure how many moneys there has been. Their whole store is pretty deplorible with alot of sick animals. Nobody seems to care in this town as this has been going on for years and years. I’m sure I’ll get backlash just for writing this but they should be shut down for the animals sakes.
