Woman at court with monkey in bra
A woman turned a few heads when she walked into a courthouse in the US 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 in rural Virginia for a hearing in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
Officials apparently did not notice the monkey until the woman went to an office to complete some paperwork.
In an interview with a local newspaper, the woman said the marmoset is seven weeks old and requires constant attention.
She said she bought the animal on an online auction site and had its clothes specially made.
