Monkey Business

I first wrote about the marauding mystery monkey of Tampa Bay in 2009 when he was just flinging feces at people.

It appears he's getting bolder...

Bad monkey!

What's next? Armed robbery?

Only in Florida stories are probably more common that only in California stories.

I have to say I liked Florida when I visited bit it sure is a weird place.

I really hate that one tree-climbing, marauding rhesus macaque spoils it for all the rest of the peace loving primates.

Monkey bites are dangerous in the extreme! The list is extensive.

Now, I love animals. But this monkey has been on the loose for some three years!

Shoot the damned monkey. Really. It's the human and the disease-and-danger-prevention thing to do!

Rhesus monkeys are not sweethearts. Take my word for it.

I wonder if this monkey has acquired rabies. It's a possibility, you know.

So is TB.

Reverse Robinson Crusoe. The only one of his species on a desert island.

Jan: It could be a toss up ;-)

Chuck: I like Florida too and it is a weird place.

DaBlade: One monkey don't stop no show. The rest of us primates will muddle through somehow.

Always On Watch: Rabies is definitely possible. I've heard that 3/4 of these monkeys carry hepatitis, too.
