Sampey found her capuchin monkey, Andy, the same way thousands of other Americans found theirs: on the Internet. She bought him from a breeder in the Midwest and Andy was flown to Louisiana on an airplane. Sampey said little Andy brought her sheer joy.
"I was so happy. I had a baby," she said. "I could dress him, put a diaper on him, and he would drink bottles."
