Not banned in Michigan, but a permit is required.

Not really. They are allowed to roam freely all over the region, although there are concentrations in some municipalities and this causes some problems. We can only hope and pray that Rep. Kandrevas is successful in his endeavor.

The exotic licensing proposal was for dancers. That is a completely different issue.

Apes do not do well in cold weather. This may be another reason there are so few black cities in the far north. Folks seeking separation could always head north. Bring your shovel; leave your gun.

Apparently, on hearing that Barack Obama had won the presidency, his dad's brother exclaimed, "Well I'll be a monkey's uncle..."

Banning of any wild life by private ownership should be passed into law ,along with any parts of them found dead or alive .Same as Owls, Eagles and other birds, or roaming animals. Shelters, Hospitals, excluded.
