They wear diapers and ride in strollers but, they’re not babies—they are “monkids.” NGC goes inside the controversy of adopting monkeys as surrogate babies. Many question whether this is animal cruelty or even a danger to the owners. Others are fiercely devoted to these primates they see as part of the family.

Dogs have been bred for thousands of years to be companions to people, and even the wild wolf shows some companion traits, but these are kidnapped wild creatures. They are taken away from their mothers at an unnaturally young age, caged for safety. One monkey was diagnosed with diabetes and even though the vet told the woman the monkey would die if she did not change it’s diet, she continued to feed her “baby” junk food.
Aren’t there laws against this?
