Amherst County, Mar 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A woman in Amherst shocked court officials when she walked into the Amherst County Courthouse on Thursday with a monkey in her bra.

Officials at the court only got to know about the monkey when she went to one of the offices in the courthouse for a routine paperwork. She mentioned something about her daughter to an officer at the office. The puzzled officer asked about the said daughter and was surprised when the woman brought the little monkey out of her bra.

The woman was allowed to complete what she was doing in the courthouse. Deputies at the courthouse did not arrest or warn the woman, indicating that she broke no law with her action.

The woman was not named in the report but she contacted The News & Advance when she heard the story on the news. She revealed that she has several other creatures. According to the woman, she bought the monkey, Cara, from Lexington after finding it on eBay.

During the interview the woman said that, “When you first get them, they’re just like a preemie. She’s just like a baby, she’s starting to teethe. I mean, caring for them is just like caring for a human.”
