Monkeys forced to dance for money to be released to the wild

- Some monkeys used as street performers in Indonesia are getting another chance at life.

The monkeys were dressed up and trained to dance in the streets for money, but they were harshly treated by their owners.

Many of them were chained and forced to walk on two feet.

Two years ago, police cracked down on the cruel practice. They collected more than 80 monkeys. Now, they're all being nursed back to health.

They'll learn to rehabilitate back to their natural habitat. Police said the monkeys are almost ready to return to the wild, which will happen later in February.
