I can imagine the chat in the 'ol prison yard now.
Prisoner #1: "So what are you in here for?"
Prisoner #2: "They say I killed a whole gang of people! What are you here for?"
Prisoner #1: " I beat a zoo animal to death with a tree branch..uhh..err.."
Prisoner #2: " Ahh, I see, well you just consider yourself my wife now and you

Yes indeed... I think our monkey beater is headed to a place where they won't be amused by his attempt at showing superiority over lesser creatures.
Where he's going, he's about to be

Probably not enough, in the grand scheme of things. I *HATE* (Yes, I said HATE) people who deliberately inflict suffering on animals for the pleasure
