AP Enterprise: La. monkey owners become refugees

Monday, 30 January 2012

Associated Press NEAR THE TEXAS-LOUISIANA LINE (AP) - Even in their Texas hideout, Jim and Donita Clark are terrified that wildlife agents from their home state of Louisiana will descend on their motorhome and seize the four Capuchin monkeys theyve reared for 10 years. Four months ago, the couple fled before authorities showed up at their house for an inspection, and ever since theyve been hiding out with their monkeys _ all of them cooped up in the recreational vehicle. Exotic animal owners like them say wildlife agents have been cracking down in Louisiana and around the country after high-profile cases of exotic animals getting loose or attacking people.
