12:00pm 30th July 2012

Two monkeys at the centre of a animal welfare prosecution are now thriving at an ape rescue centre in Dorset.

'Tya' and 'Rattler' are now thriving after staff from Monkey World in Wool took them from a house in Plymouth earlier this year.

Monkey World's Alison Cronin says the 2 Marmosets were kept in appalling conditions and she's says last week's court hearings vindicated their actions

Last week a court heard a man from Plymouth admitted 4 charges of animal neglect..

Mrs  Cronin is appalled the apes, native from the Amazon delta, are freely available here as pets and claims many purchasers ignore their basic needs, including that of companionship, as the animals do better when in a family rather than alone.
