AMHERST, Va. (AP/ THE BLAZE) -- If you had a pet monkey, would you carry it around in your bosom?
A woman turned a few heads when she walked into a rural Virginia courthouse with a tiny monkey clad in a pink-and-white dress tucked in her bra.
The woman brought the palm-sized marmoset to Amherst County Courthouse on Thursday for a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Officials apparently didn't notice the monkey until the woman went to an office to complete some paperwork.
In an interview with The News & Advance of Lynchburg, the woman says the marmoset is 7 weeks old and requires constant attention.
The woman tells the newspaper she bought the animal on an online auction site and had its clothes specially made in West Virginia.
