Why are ther monkeys in Florida??  <ckecks wikipedia> The monkeys, rhesus macaques, originate from two small groups released into the Silver Springs state park almost 100 years ago by an eccentric boat captain.

Oh, Florida - you just keep being you

Don't sweat it, it's a small colony.  Just 12 monkeys.

In Florida, because of course.

Basically, 80 years ago someone decided it was a brilliant move to set up a tropical jungle-themed tourist trap and populate it with monkeys.

As you can see, the monkeys did quite well with this plan.  There are something like 300 currently, and people go on kayaking or riverboat tours just to see them.

Rangers told those kayaking to 'move away' from the group of rhesus monkeys

Why aren't the rangers culling them instead? The monkeys I mean. I guess the kayakers are invasive species as well.

There are videos posted to YouTube from those expeditions.

They just want to cross the river to forage a bit.  They are probably looking for some rhesus pieces.

This added meaning to the whole article. Wouldn't have known what to make of it without that bit of information. Usually this type of detail in the Daily Mail is bolstered by a gratuitous bikini or cleavage shot so I'm a bit disappointed there.

The mistake was letting someone video record you.
