Man Fined for Shooting Monkey

If you’re a monkey, don’t play in Travis Allen Ballard’s South African garden. Ballard shot a vervet monkey with a pellet gun, and according to witnesses, continued to take potshots at other monkeys who were trying to assist the injured animal. Ballard was later fined $465 and the injured monkey was euthanased. The deregulation of pellet guns has resulted in a spree of animal shootings.
