A Somerset woman is facing charges for bringing a monkey to Kentucky.

Tamela Collins says she brought the monkey from Texas to Kentucky to act as a service animal for her son, who has autism. She says she's about to be indicted for not having a special permit for the monkey. She says she didn't know it was illegal.

The story and this picture are from the Commonwealth-Journal newspaper.
