Kenzy, a 7-year-old-chimpanzee, one of four chimps and a capuchin monkey is at the center of a battle before Clark County commissioners. The primates' owner, Mike Casey, is seeking a use permit to keep the animals in this location for another year. County staff has advised against it, and animal rights activists have mobilized and sent nearly 2,000 emails to County Commissioner Steve Sisolak in opposition.
