This Monkey Was Rescued After Years In Chains, But Then A Familiar Figure Came Into His Enclosure

For the longest time, Pepe’s movement was limited to the length of his chain. Restriction was all he knew, day in and day out, until one day a human approached him. After some effort they took Pepe’s collar off, and a feeling of freedom washed over him.

Spider monkeys are a species of primate that live wild in tropical rainforests in Mexico, Brazil, and other parts of South and Central America. At least, they’re supposed to, but some are not so fortunate. Take Pepe, for instance – he spent almost a decade in a terrible form of captivity.
