"Killer’ herpes isn’t stopping these monkeys from mating and, yep, they’re in Florida."

" They have a herpes virus that can be fatal to humans. They are randy. And their population could double by 2022. “They” are a group of about 200 feral monkeys — rhesus macaques, to be exact — in Silver Springs State Park in central Florida’s Marion County."

" The virus is transmitted by bites and scratches and simian bodily fluids — monkeys are known to, sorry, fling their poop, so that could be one way to spread the infection, too. " :drinking:
