Herpes-Infected Monkeys Invade Florida

Florida's Herpes-Infected Rhesus Monkey ProblemTake Part – by Andri Antoniades

If any state in the union best represents the dangers of invasive species, it’s Florida. The Sunshine State is home to what’s been a raging Burmese python invasion for some decades. And its Cuban tree frog problem isn’t doing the ecosystem any favors either.

But the state has a new issue: invasive Rhesus monkeys—with herpes. 

There are about 1,000 feral Rhesus monkeys living in Florida right now. Among those scooped up by wildlife officials over the years, most were found to be carriers of the Herpes B virus, and this week, the colony was declared a public health hazard.

It’s believed a small handful of the wild animals originally landed in the state in the 1930s, courtesy of  “Colonel” Tooey, a tour operator who wanted to give visitors a Tarzan-inspired experience of Florida’s Silver River State Park.

Tooey reportedly kept the monkeys sequestered on an island, but they learned to swim to the shore, easily reaching the mainland, and moving out, putting down roots as far as Jacksonville, over a hundred miles away.

Herpes B doesn’t cause serious symptoms in these particular animals, but in humans, it can lead to neurological impairment or fatal encephalomyelitis, an inflammation of the brain and spinal cord leading to death.

Florida’s Rhesus monkeys are known to act aggressively towards people, and the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are concerned the animals could spread their herpes to humans or otherwise injure them. They are warning tourists and natives to be aware of the monkeys and keep their distance.

  1. Easy fix; let the Zionist pervs, that infest that state, know not to be humpin’ the wildlife.

    Wonder if Obammy Care covers this infestation?

    1. That would work BentSpear I would think but remember what those freakish elite/NWO do and how they act at that Boheimian Grove place in Calif. They would enjoy humping/swapping spit with those monkies. Yes they enjoy animal/human sacrifices and bestiality at Boheimina Grove remember.

      1. Yup….think it was posted here on FTT that Germany wanted to make it legal to marry dogs & other critters. As for the twisted Grovers, if it’s got a hole, they’ll poke it or bang it. BTW, digger, the biggest traffickers in Bestiality Porn is Zionist Israel.

      1. The Zionist father with his member buried in the back side of a sheep looks down at his son in the same position and says “And they give wool too!”.

        1. Ha, Millard, sounds like that neighbor of mine Jeff that you are talking about. I know you know who that Jeff guy is, you know that guy who likes cows.

          1. OK Henry, I will clean it up 🙂 Sorry about that neighbor of mine. He was on the tonight show though 🙂 .

  2. I told myself I’d leave this one alone. In fact, I’d already deleted it. But you guys look like you’re having WAY too much fun over here, so I thought I’d put my two cents worth in.

    Who in the hell was dumb enough to believe them when they first came out and said that AIDS came from monkeys? I wasn’t even awake back then, and I didn’t believe it for a minute.
