Spokeswoman Lisa Norwood says Louie the juvenile macaque monkey is now living at Primarily Primates, a San Antonio rescue center for primates and other exotic animals.

But the San Antonio Express-News reports the American with Disabilities Act doesn’t recognize primates as service animals. Norwood also says it’s against the law to have a monkey within the city limits of San Antonio.

The man was cited for a Class B misdemeanor. Norwood says the investigation continues.
