Studies say Florida Monkeys are deadly, which kill you

Studies say Florida Monkeys are deadly, which kill you

No one keeps a thorough record of encounters between the monkeys and humans at Silver Springs State Park, said Samantha Wiley, a University of Florida researcher who is a co-author of the study.

The data reveals that a growing population of rhesus macaques in Silver Springs state park could be carrying herpes B in their saliva, as opposed to simply carrying the virus, which is common in the species.

Herpes B in humans in rare: only 50 cases have been registered worldwide and transmissions of the virus have never knowingly happened in the wild. Be that as it may, the specialists, who distributed their discoveries in the CDC diary Emerging Infectious Diseases, say the issue has not been completely considered. Only 50 people have contracted it since 1932, according to the CDC, and there are no documented transmissions from wild macaques.

"When it occurs, it can bring about serious mind harm or demise if the patient isn't dealt with quickly", a CDC rep says in an announcement. The report about the same also consists that there is a need to remove these monkey from the reach of people, which can be a hard task to do.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission didn't go into details on plans.

The virus is rare in humans. When the disease does occur, however, it can result in brain damage or death.

Now nearly 30 percent of these reptiles drifting the park are excreting the herpes B virus during saliva and other body fluids.

"Human visitors to the park are most likely to be exposed ... through contact with saliva from macaque bites and scratches or from contact with virus shed through urine and feces", the paper's authors wrote.

Spokeswoman Carli Segelson told the Associated Press that the commission supports the removal of the primates to reduce any posed threat. On a chilly day in November, Capt. Tom O'Lenick, who has navigated the Silver River for 35 years, hollered from his charter boat into the dense surrounding forest.

The rhesus macaques are an invasive species native to Southeast Asia. Macaques have released to the Sunshine State's Silver Springs State Park as a tourist attraction almost 100 decades back. A rhesus monkey on the loose in Pinellas County for more than two years was caught in October 2012.

"They didn't know monkeys could swim", O'Lenick said. While there are no official statistics on monkeys attacking humans in the park, a state-sponsored study conducted in the 1990s found that there were at least 31 incidents reported resulting in human injury between 1977 and 1984.

"We don't have any silver bullet; that's the nature of science", Wisely said.
