Mon­key selfie

Vocable (Anglais) - - A 360 -

In 2011, Na­ru­to, a mon­key in the In­do­ne­sian jungle, snap­ped this selfie using a ca­me­ra ow­ned by Bri­tish pho­to­gra­pher David Sla­ter. The image made Na­ru­to an In­ter­net ce­le­bri­ty and spar­ked a dis­pute over who ow­ned the co­py­right for the photo: the ma­caque or the man? PETA, the or­ga­ni­za­tion suing on be­half of the mon­key, an­noun­ced last month that a set­tle­ment had fi­nal­ly been rea­ched. In a joint sta­te­ment with PETA, David Sla­ter agreed to do­nate 25% of the mo­ney ge­ne­ra­ted by the selfie to cha­ri­ties "de­di­ca­ted to pro­tec­ting the wel­fare or ha­bi­tat of Na­ru­to."
