So apparently you can get in trouble if you take a picture in the wild. Well for wildlife photographer David  Slator he was being sued by PETA for using and selling a smiling picture of Naruto the monkey . Naruto the monkey actually took the picture himself and it caused a bit of a frenzy.

"The unanimous, three-judge panel upheld a lower court ruling that dismissed the lawsuit by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals against a photographer whose camera was used by a crested macaque to take the photos in 2011.

PETA's 2015 suit against wildlife photographer David Slater sought financial control of the photographs — including a now-famous selfie of the monkey grinning — for the benefit of the animal named Naruto."


Recently both PETA and Slater came to a settlement over the pictures . PETA will get 25 percent of any revenue made from the photos.
