Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant apparently has a pet monkey. Bryant recently posted the following image on social media of the infant capuchin.
PETA has called on authorities to investigate if the monkey is in illegal possession of Bryant. PETA’s Brittany Pete said the following:
“Captive monkeys should be cared for by wildlife experts who understand their physical and psychological needs and in facilities where they can live in natural social groups — they should not be in the hands of an NFL football player. This infant animal must be urgently relocated to a reputable animal sanctuary, where he or she can be provided with appropriate care.”
She also delivered this shot:
“Monkeys belong in the wild — not in the hands of football players who acquire exotic animals just to make a splash on Instagram.”
Bryant has not yet responded.
