How the TSA Plans On Inspecting Your Monkey

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the I'm-gonna-need-to-check-your-monkey dept.

Transportation 114

The uncertainty of what might happen to your service monkey at an airport security checkpoint won't keep you awake at night anymore, thanks to the TSA. They have issued an easy to follow list of how they will ensure your helper monkey won't go all Planet of the Apes on your flight. Some of the security techniques used to make sure your primate is not a terrorist include: "Security Officers will conduct a visual inspection on the service monkey and will coach the handler on how to hold the monkey during the visual inspection. The inspection process may require that the handler to take off the monkey's diaper as part of the visual inspection."

If the monkey needs a diaper... and it is supposed to be the more cognizant of the two traveling companions... Something is wrong (and I sure as hell don't want to sit next to either on a flight). Sorry, maybe the whole hands-for-feet thing gives them some special abilities, but if the monkey can't even decide when to and when not to take a dump, is he really doing you any good?

Re:A service monkey? Really? (2, Funny)

eln (21727) | more than 4 years ago | (#31615322)

The diaper serves as a handy carrying case for the monkey, in case they have to poo now, but won't have anyone nearby they want to fling it at until later. If your helper monkey has some sort of grudge against TSA agents, perhaps because of being treated as a terrorist just because it has hair on its face, it's highly recommended you change the monkey's diaper before going through security.

Re:A service monkey? Really? (2, Insightful)

v1 (525388) | more than 4 years ago | (#31616058)

I was thinking on this too, we don't have to put diapers on dogs or cats. But it just must be the "nature of the beaste" to not be easy to toilet train. It may simply be the case that monkeys don't have sufficient warning, control, and capacity to "hold it" if they have to go. Sort of like having to pull over every 45 minutes when you're on a car trip with a four year old passenger. The diaper is probably not their regular choice for the monkey, but more to prevent a mess if things get unpredictable.

And then there's the whole thing about monkeys (chimps mostly) entertaining themselves by flinging poo. The picture looked like a macaque, I don't recall hearing about them flinging poo at the zoos like you hear from time to time with the chimps. And a macaque would make a much better service animal just for the small adult size. (chimps get big and very strong, some have been known to outright beat up their handlers)

I believe it is a herbivore/carnivore thing. Pooping at the moment a tiger bites your butt is probably a favorable genetic response to predation. If you feed your four year old passenger more meat and less fruit and vegetables the stops will be less frequent.

When I traveled between the U.S. and Canada, it was typical for me to remove pet cat and guinea pig from carriers and carry them by hand through the metal detectors. Surprisingly, the cat had greater veterinary bill of health requirements than the guinea pig.

SydShamino (547793) | more than 4 years ago | (#31615204)

Surprisingly, the cat had greater veterinary bill of health requirements than the guinea pig.

Not so surprising, as a cat can and will eat birds, rats, etc., and thus is far more likely to be exposed to disease.

A veterinarian friend once told us that, wherever we go in the world and whatever local food we eat, never ever try to eat a cat (domestic or tiger/lion/etc.). They are filthy animals.

And yes I sleep with three indoor-only cats snuggling me at night. And yet I wash my hands after touching our hedgehog.

Re:That's not unusual. (1)

v1 (525388) | more than 4 years ago | (#31616174)

They are filthy animals.

They by themselves are quite clean, you don't have to bathe them anywhere near as often as a guinea pig or dog for example.

Problem is, they are scavengers, a bit like a ground vulture. In the wild they'll eat anything they can catch or steal/find. They have a stomach to eat rotten nasty things and not get sick, but if you happen to get some of that it'll make you ill quick. Domestic indoor cats of course don't have that issue. A guinea pig for example, is a vegetarian iirc?

Re:That's not unusual. (1)

v1 (525388) | more than 4 years ago | (#31617784)

I can't imagine a guinea pig being harder to bathe than a typical cat - smaller teeth, smaller claws, not as strong, no bred-in fear of water.

My cats on the other hand, come in the shower with me. But that's something you need to start really early with them, and keep up. I can just picture trying to bathe a guinea pig... get a shower with glass doors. fill it up with a couple inches of water and the shower head on. Walk into the bathroom and just toss them up over the glass. Watch them ricochet repeatedly off the inside of the glass, trying to defy gravity and avoid the water. And finally at last, submitting. (or breaking the glass I suppose) Would make a great youtube if nothing else.

Wyatt Earp (1029) | more than 4 years ago | (#31615216)

When I travelled through Canada to get to Alaska we took our pets. The two cats were easy, vet paperwork saying they didn't have rabies and had shots etc.

We also have three reptiles, a Green Iguana who is 15 years old, a Central Inland Bearded Dragon and a Saharan Uromastyx (orange). I looked up the rules on taking exotics into Canada and there is some conflicting information.

http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/anima/imp/petani/amphe.shtml [inspection.gc.ca] and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency told me -
"Reptiles do not require any certification from CFIA but they do need CITES permits." I don't have CITES permits, so I printed out the page that said I don't need anything and went to the border. Oh in emailing the CFIA they said I needed CITES permits, photos of the reptiles in question mailed to them and to wait 6-12 weeks for permit.

I go to the border with reptiles in the backseat of the car, in clear plastic containers where the Iguana does what he does best, stands still as a rock. We didn't tell them about the lizards, but there they were, up high and in plain sight. No questions asked.

We get to the US border crossing and the agent looks into the car and says "How did you get those into Canada? Did they know you brought them in???"

It's samzenpus. And it is only samzenpus. He only posts "idle" articles. Sometimes he posts them in "idle" (he did one earlier today), but most often he posts them in other sections -- even though they are always idle-quality articles.

Taco, really... enough is enough -- give smazenpus his own site. Or at the very least stop him posting articles in sections other than "idle". And get his articles out of the main RSS feed. I DO NOT ever want to read another of his articles ever, ever again. I cannot do this because his crap keeps appearing in the main feed, disguised as actual tech news.

It is only fair that we have a choice whether to read this crap or not, if it is in the RSS feed we DO NOT have the choice. FIX IT!

I think nerds need to be aware that there is such a thing as a service monkey. Further, once we gain this knowledge, the natural question is since you people want to search my notebook, how does this apply to my newly discovered awareness of service monkeys? Do they check for flingable poo? Do they check to see if it can urinate on command? Can they touch my monkey?

The number of duplicate posts with duplicate explanations about whether the monkey may be touched or spanked clearly suggests nerds are interested in these things. Next time don't post, and it will look like fewer people are interested. And I apologize for adding to the post count on the story, but you asked. Next time don't ask, even rhetorical questions, because someone will answer.

I like all the sections that say "Security Officers have been trained to not _______". So you have a trained service monkey, and it has to meet up with a trained higher order primate at a checkpoint!

Of course, "higher order primate" might give a bit too much credit to the TSA goon squad, but they certainly are in fact trained animals. Sadly, like many monkeys, they do occasionally lift shiny objects from innocent bystanders....

Mind you the question does come to mind how the helper monkey's diaper would get changed if you have no use of your hands..Would the monkey change it?

It's pretty interesting too. I wonder how they get around the fact that these are not domesticated animals. What I mean is, cats and dogs have lived and evolved with humans for thousands of years and for the most part will obey humans or are sufficiently docile towards humans. Whereas these monkeys definitely still have very deep instincts about living in the wild, and are prone to turn, well wild. I guess that is part of why these are so small. If they were to try this with a chimp it could literally rip a human's arms off.

I don't care how "domesticated" you think your house cat it. the only reason it does not eat you is because you are too big. Breed a tiger sized house cat, and kitty will start eating people, ripping them apart with their claws, etc....

Yet huge dogs that are of breeds that are fully tame will not try to eat their masters or other humans. There are breeds of Irish wolf hounds of mastiffs that will scare the living crap out of almost anyone seeing one. Nothing like having a dog look you in the eye and standing on all four feet when you are 5'10" tall. and a mastiff at over 250 pounds can easily out-muscle and start chowing down on people. yet they don't (normal non abused ones, abused animals all bets are off). That might be because we dont have to teach cats to not eat people though.....

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31617606)

they are all nested. I click 'More' they are still all nested. Where are the threshold controls? I posted about this 30 minutes ago and I don't even see the comment! In it, I made the statement "put it back the way it was 5 years ago!".

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31617946)
