Tracie Perry Widwest monkeys and exotics Sold a monkey without proper licensing and paperwork Lebanon Missouri

41

I purchased a male java macaque from Tracie Perry, who stated that she was licensed by the USDA and would provide the proper paperwork and health certificate (both required by law for transport of non human primates).

Upon delivery, she stated that she had left the paperwork in a motel and would email it. After a month of getting the run around about the paperwork and never receiving it, I contacted the USDA. I was informed that she was no longer licensed and that the sale had not been legal. 

A current list of licensed exotic animal dealers can be found on the USDA APHIS website. Her name does not appear on that list as of this date. Also, the boy I purchased is, in fact, a girl.
