Woman Sues Over Pet Squirrel Monkey's Grave

A woman on Florida's Atlantic coast has sued the owner of a pet cemetery over her pet squirrel monkey's grave.

Janet Steiner's 20-ounce monkey Mighty died of cancer in 1994, and she had him buried at Columbia Pet Memorial Gardens in Melbourne.

But she says the cemetery's owner did not maintain the grounds well, and she moved his remains last year. Now she wants $500 -- the cost of the original burial and the move.

The cemetery's owner says he has maintained the cemetery and that Steiner's demands were unreasonable: asking that he clean up within days of hurricanes in 2004 and cut the grass every week.

A small claims court judge says he will mail his decision after visiting the cemetery.
