Ebi's capture and transfer to the sanctuary didn't go as smoothly.
Another Louisiana rescue, Ebi was handed over to Angie and Randy Walker, a couple known for taking in unwanted animals, by his former owners in 2003. The couple hesitated to take Ebi in at first because they didn't have experience handling a monkey. But Ebi's owners threatened to shoot him if they didn't, leaving the Walkers with no other option but to house him temporarily, Bagnall said.
"[Angie] put him in a carrier in a garage, then called me and told me she had a monkey there," Bagnall said. "I said, 'Did you lock the carrier?'"
