One of the saddest cases I saw in all my time in Bolivia, this black-faced spider monkey was being kept on a leash in a villager’s back yard. The owner had killed and eaten the monkey’s mother the year before and had kept her baby as a pet.

Loggers who illegally lumber the park poach game to eat while they’re in there, orphaning many young animals each year.
