FWC seizes monkey from Hialeah home

HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials have seized an illegally caged monkey from a Hialeah home.

The owner surrendered the animal to FWC officers after they found it enclosed in a bird cage in November.

Officials said the homeowner did not have the proper license to own the wild animal.

The monkey has since been taken to an animal sanctuary.
