Nonhuman Primates Are Not Pets

Michigan legislature may soon be voting on a bill that would prohibit the ownership of nonhuman primates as pets.

Michigan legislature may soon be voting on a bill that would prohibit the ownership of nonhuman primates as pets.

The Michigan state legislature has a bill before it, SB 669, which will prohibit the ownership of nonhuman primates as pets. Exotic animals do not belong in the hands of private owners or hobbyists. The trade in exotic animals brings much pain, suffering, and sometimes death to the animals and often harm to the humans who come into contact with them.

Michigan residents, please contact your legislators and let them know you are in favor of their passing SB 669. Residents of other states, please contact your legislators and let them know that you want stricter controls on who can own wild and exotic animals in your state.
