Transportation Safety Administration Rules on Helper Monkeys

Monkey Helpers:

  • When a monkey is being transported in a carrier, the monkey must be removed from the carrier by the handler prior to screening,
  • The monkey must be controlled by the handler throughout the screening process.

  • The monkey handler should carry the monkey through the WTMD while the monkey remains on a leash.

  • When the handler and monkey go through the WTMD and the WTMD alarms, both the handler and the monkey must undergo additional screening.

  • Since monkeys may likely draw attention, the handler will be escorted to the physical inspection area where a table is available for the monkey to sit on. Only the handler will touch or interact with the monkey.

  • TSOs have been trained to not touch the monkey during the screening process.

  • TSOs will conduct a visual inspection on the monkey and will coach the handler on how to hold the monkey during the visual inspection.

  • The inspection process may require that the handler take off the monkey's diaper as part of the visual inspection.
