Big cats and even crocodiles are all kept as pets in Dubai, but the furore over a man who took his monkey to a nightclub shows that public opinion is starting to change!
The monkey, which was dressed in a T-shirt advertising the event and had a lead around it’s neck, was held by its owner as it was pictured with the vodka bottle. The photo was used to promote a nightclub party.
Shortly after, images of the monkey’s night out appeared on Facebook, apparently sporting the logo of the club night’s independent promoter. The resulting furore ran on Facebook and Twitter for days.
