kd, a few points of clarification: The original reference to the drunk monkeys was on the island of St. Kitts, not Antigua. I wasn't disturbed by someone asking a question, merely what the question about the monkeys represented to me
....cruel treatment of animals as entertainment. I was not, and would not, suggest a boycott of any kind, anywhere. I was merely conveying the fact I
wouldn't care to visit St. Kitts, if this is occurring.
My apologies to anyone who found my posting unappealing. Having seen a youtube video that showed people purposely allowing the monkeys to take their drinks and some very drunk monkeys, I guess it just "got my goat" that the OP appeared to be specifically searching out the drunk monkeys as a form of entertainment.
If the OP informs me my interpretation of their inquiry about the monkeys was incorrect, I do owe them an apology.
I will take a more diplomatic approach in future postings.
I sent an email on September 3rd, to an animal welfare group on the island to see if they have any information about the drunk monkeys. No response thus far.
I hope this post smooths the waters.
