The "monkey grabbing" is a perfectly inelastic collision!
But... acrobat loves monkey, isn't he?

In collisions mechanical energy is not conserve, because of deformation energy, heat energy etc. When acrobate grabbing monkey he minimalize all that cases, and grab animal carefully. Dispersal of energy can be omit, I suppose

Whatever, as RoyalCat said, momentum is allways conserve... and it is allways right method.
