This Interview with the photographer tells a slightly different story. He says to get the shot, he set up a tripod to intentionally get this shot with a string release for the shutter, so that the monkeys could look at their reflections in the lens, play with the string, and hopefully get the shot.
So, he came up with the idea and set the whole thing up. Just because the subject pulled the shutter, shouldn't mean he loses ownership of the photo.
