Good News! {for now!} The Dark Service has stopped allowing the trapping of the Rhesus Monkeys in Sliver Springs {aka Silver River State Park. }

The article states:

"The recently returned public records also reveal that the potential threats posed by the wild monkeys to the health and safety of park visitors, and the negative impacts on native species, have been overstated."

"Overstates the threat" Damn! that sounds familiar!! We need a Park Service - We do not need a Dark {Ops} Service that serves it's management and not the visitors!


I'd suggest using the email link at the bottom of the article to reinforce the ban on "removal!"

Introduced in 1932, in what is now SilverSprings State Park, These monkeys now roam from Tampa to Jacksonville Florida.

They are frequently seen in the Silver Springs Park while on the boat tours of the Silver River.

Several groups of the monkeys have established territories and tribal order.
