"Feces-throwing monkey on the loose in Tampa Bay"

Today’s monkey-link is from JunglePete:

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Wildlife officials said a rhesus monkey known to throw feces when mad is on the loose in Tampa Bay. Authorities have been trying to capture the primate since Tuesday afternoon, but it managed to evade a bucket truck and tranquilizer dart.

Gary Morse with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the adult male is thought to have escaped from an unlicensed source. It was last seen in Clearwater.

The monkey is not considered dangerous.

I was going to end with a joke about how JunglePete is also known to throw feces when angry, but that one’s just too easy. And not all that funny. Also, possibly true.

This is how rumors get started.

Sharing is caring!
