Florida has Herpes-Infected Monkeys

This is a serious story, but why is it that all the weird ones come out of Florida?

That’s right, Rhesus monkeys infected with Hep B are running around the Sunshine State. And the best part? This is another case of humans bringing non-native species where they don’t belong as nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

Yahoo news reports that the whole thing is the fault of one overly-ambtious tour guide who wanted to fill seats trucked in a cartload of the little buggers in the 30’s to boost his sales. Well now they can give you a deadly disease. Sleep tight with that knowledge.
