In December a judge ordered the return of Armani, a capuchin monkey, to the home of Rockville, Md., resident Elyse Gazewitz. Armani had been in custody at a zoo since May, when he was seized after an animal sanctuary employee called authorities to report Gazewitz's possession of the monkey. The judge found that Armani should have been returned to Gazewitz after police dropped charges against her for possessing an illegal monkey in city limits.
