A judge in New York has ruled against a Liberian woman who cited religious reasons for smuggling meat from an endangered species of monkey into the United States.
Raymond J Dearie, a federal US district judge, said that Mamie Manneh was wrong when she claimed that her faith - a sect of Christianity - meant that she did not need to apply for permits to import exotic food stuffs.

She should have stuck to greasy, grimy gopher guts.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse.
She could use the same excuse for cannibalism.
A couple of years ago they caught some Haitian woman smuggling in a human skull. We have Ted Kennedy to thank for these Diversity Visas. We never did have enough monkey-eating African Cannibals in our melting-pot/salad-bowl.
And what sect would that be, exactly?
So what goes well with monkey meat and what type of wine does one serve?
Have you ever tried "Monkey Brains à la Mode?"
If one subscribes to evolution, monkey is nearly human, genetically; rendering monkey meals cannibalism!
I smuggled >rotten< monkey meat for religious reasons.Eeeeewwwwwwww!
The other, other white meat...
I’ve known many Liberians for years and I’ve never heard of anything like this. Of course, this woman could be from one of the tribes less represented here than the Krahn or Mandingo.
Sounds like a good way to spread Ebola.
That’s also how we ended up with HIV.
