The camera owner screwed up as soon as he said the monkey did the most important work, composition. PETA has no case IMO but the camera owner is still not the photographer for the scene in dispute. No one owns the copyright for the USA; other countries might be different.

PETA is an attention hound. They look for headlines and money more than they do reasonable protections of animals (how was the monkey harmed and how will PETA help it???). A few years ago they tried to get a town named "Fishkill" (Dutch for "Fish River") to change their name.

Technically, there's a chance that the photo is uncopyrightable. It wasn't taken nor staged by a human. With the lightning trigger example, the photographer enabled the trigger, hit some control on purpose, etc. and is clearly the photographer. In the monkey case, the human merely owns the camera, and didn't set it up for that photo.
