Mr. Muggs: Jonestown Mascot/Jim Jones: Monkey Salesman


Mr. Muggs was a chimpanzee that the Reverend Jim Jones kept in a cage near his cottage. It was rumored that small children were placed in the cage with Mr. Muggs as a form of punishment.
His cage is the only structure still standing on the original grounds of the People's Temple in Guyana. 
In fact, Jim Jones's raised enough money to open his first church in Indianapolis as a door to door monkey salesman.
