http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/12/he...se-in-florida/Thousands of herpes-infected monkeys are terrorizing Florida, in case you didn’t know.
The monkeys first were brought into the state in 1930 because a tour guide really liked the movie “Tarzan,” reports the New York Post.
Wildlife officials estimate that there are over a thousand wild monkeys now living in the state. Over the past decade they’ve managed to capture about 700 of them.
Most are infected with herpes-B, which rarely transfers to humans, but when it does, it is often fatal, according to the CDC. Florida officials are now considering the primates a public health hazard.
