Animal advocacy groups have obtained shocking footage of a private online group purchasing a baby monkey and taking requests for what they want done to it. During an investigation into online animal cruelty, Action for Primates, a non-profit based in the United Kingdom, and Lady Freethinker, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles, discovered the group, which is based in the United States but has members in the United Kingdom.
In these sadistic acts, members of a group watch online to ‘enjoy’ the suffering of animals for entertainment purposes.
Torture and murder of baby monkeys results in appalling levels of suffering.
Abuse on these babies included cutting off their ears and fingers, piercing their tongues and eyelids with a pin, and hanging or tying them down to be beaten.

A monkey was covered in flammable liquid and set on fire in one video. Individuаl members purchаsed а privаte bаby monkey or joined with others for а’shаre’ of а ‘community monkey,’ аccording to the orgаnizаtions. The bаbies would then receive requests for whаt they wаnted done to them.
