Pepe has been exploited for years in a circus, forced to perform for visitors and to live tied up in a small cage
The monkey you see in the photos is called pepper and for a lifetime it has lived in a circus, every day with a tight chain around the neck.
A group of volunteers who became aware of his situation filmed undercover footage inside the circus. It was thanks to the videos, that they found out who Pepe was forced to perform for visitors every day e he lived in terrible conditions inside its cage.
Monkeys in the wild are incredibly sociable creatures and Pepe’s isolation in the circus made her feel alone and abused. Rescuers knew full well that for much of her rehabilitation, they would have to show her all love affection possible.
The new life of the monkey Pepe
When Jan managed to take Pepe away from the circus, she immediately fell in love with the monkey and an extraordinary bond was born between them. Despite the conditions in which he was forced to live, the animal he quickly learned to trust of the woman and all other humans within the sanctuary
But the volunteer knew she needed another monkey. Pepe had suffered from overwhelming loneliness for many years. Then one day came the news that had been waiting for so long. Not far from the sanctuary, there was another spider monkey that had to be saved. So Jan immediately rushed to her rescue and eventually rescued a companion of the same species as Pepe, with whom she immediately began interacting.
Today Pepe lives with his new friend and is enjoying himself a life of freedom, away from the circus.
Once again the biggest thanks goes to the volunteers from all over the world, who every day struggle to save these poor furry friends who have been mistreated and forced to live in conditions from which they cannot free themselves. It is only thanks to them that thousands of animals manage to have one second chance from life And they finally know love.
