Its true. He was convicted of breaking into a zoo, attempting to steal the monkey, then beating it to death when it bit him.


Idaho man sentenced to seven years for killing zoo monkey
Michael Watkins, 22, pleaded guilty to breaking into a Boise zoo last year and beating a monkey to death. Authorities said Watkins was trying to steal the Patas money when it bit him.


An Idaho man who admitted to breaking into a Boise zoo last year and killing a monkey was sentenced to seven years in prison on Thursday, court records show.

Michael Watkins, 22, of Weiser, Idaho, in March pleaded guilty to attempted grand theft, a felony, and misdemeanor animal cruelty stemming from the break-in and beating death of the monkey at Zoo Boise in November.

The primate was one of the zoo's two Patas monkeys, ground-dwelling animals from Africa that stand more than 2 feet tall and weigh about 35 pounds. They are rare in zoos but not endangered in the wild.

Nigeria and most of its indigines are still existing in the dark ages...Animals, no matter how exotic is still regarded as bushmeat.
In advanced countries cruelty to Animals is a grave offence. In America if ur dog, tethered in your own back yard does not get adequate food, and water and a protective shed over its head, ur most likely will be brought up on charges of Animal cruelty. and most likely it will be ur neighnours that tipped off the Animal police, and yes there are Animal police in most advanced countries.

It's even inhuman and unnatural to keep animals in the zoo instead of the natural habitation which is in the wild.

First of all, the monkey was secured in a gov funded zoo, kept away from slow public delinquent like the suspect.


Suspect broke into a freaking zoo to kidnap the monkey, beat the monkey up till it died.


Thats a crime.

Are monkeys and other animals in the zoo more "important" to humanity than the ones people kill daily without anyone blinking an eye?

Humans should not be killing or eating any animals period...

What type of savage eats a four legged animal...

Ill give the fish and the bird eaters a pass..

But if you are eating a 4 Legged beast , then you are some sort of subhuman slime

Only Uncivilized Folk Eat Animals.

Some animals are better kept in zoos to preserve their existence (endangered species)

While others are kept for education purposes in a well-cared for facilities.



I understand what you mean, but the suspect is guilty of killing another living organism in an unjust manner.

The fact that he can do that to a helpless animal shows that he won't hesitate to kill a human being If opportunity is provided

Is that the way you're seeing this crime? A hierarchy of importance?

Next thing you know, you'll be categorizing unjust MURDER of rich from poor in level of importance.

Then by race and color.


Animal or human, breaking into a locked facility with an intention to fatality harm an unarmed individual is a crime. Period.
