Exotic Ranch Mourns Loss of Monkey

Monkey's death casts pall on ranch
Residents outraged by shooting of primate family's patriarch

WILLS POINT JOURNALWILLS POINT – As a lifelong resident of Van Zandt County, Kathy Davis has always enjoyed taking children by Cash Wiley's exotic animal ranch every now and then to watch a family of Barbary apes cavort on a small island just off a back road.
