Stay safe...
Herpes concerns could prompt removal of Silver Springs State Park monkeys


ON THE SILVER RIVER, Fla. —

Wildlife managers in Florida say they want to remove roaming monkeys from the state because some are excreting a virus that can be dangerous to humans.

A study released Wednesday finds that some of the wild rhesus macaques in Silver Springs State Park not only carry the herpes B virus, but have it in their saliva and other bodily fluids. This poses a potential risk of spreading the disease to any humans who may be bitten or scratched.

Human cases of the virus have been rare, with about 50 documented worldwide, and there have been no known transmissions of it to people from wild rhesus macaques in Florida or elsewhere.

State wildlife officials say they support removing the invasive monkeys from the environment, though they aren't elaborating on how they would do it.

And we all know that at some point some backwoods shitheel will contract herpes from a monkey and this is of course, Florida.

Maybe not banging one. But allowing to come to one of his parties and someone inevitably groping one and then it spreads like wildfire.

I'm sure the groping has already spread at blue's parties.

So human cases are extremely rare, and there has never been a known transmission from these monkeys, but let's panic and eradicate them.

The state wants to wipe out any vestiges of old silver springs and turn the whole place into a nature trail/kayak park.

F rhesus macaques, they're not indigenous to Florida. Eradicate them with extreme prejudice.

Release the rednecks, problem solved.

I ain't going to kill it, if I'm not going to eat it. Except for coyotes. Fuck coyotes.
