Woman Appears in Court With Monkey in Her Bra

A woman turned few heads when she entered a rural Virginia courthouse with a tiny monkey clad in a pink-and-white dress tucked in her bra.

The woman brought the palm-sized marmoset to Amherst County Courthouse on Thursday for a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. The monkey apparently wasn't detected until the woman went to an office to complete some paperwork.

In an interview with The News Advance of Lynchburg, the woman said the marmoset was 7 weeks old on Friday and it requires constant attention.

The woman told the newspaper she purchased the animal on an online auction site and had its clothes specially made in West Virginia.
