I think that they would be an invasive species? They sure aren’t native to FL.

When I went to Africa the monkeys at the camp were horrible thieving bastages. Someone had to stay outside when we were unpacking, packing up or anytime we were doing something outside with a 12 gauge to keep them out of stuff. They would see an open hatch on a SUV and would be in it in no time stealing something. We couldn’t eat outside or they would jump down on the table and take our food. 3 inch #2 Black Cloud goose loads worked pretty good. The day we left our PH had lost his cool with the monkeys after they took some handheld radios and a duffle bag. He gave us 3 12 gauge Mossbergs and then he scattered some newspapers around camp. They couldn’t take the temptation. We piled monkeys up for about 15 minutes.

I don't think I could shoot monkeys unless they were a threat to my life or another human life.
Too human looking. I just couldn't do it.

Monkey bites are about the nastiest, dirtiest, most "infective" (I made up that word) animal bites there are - and they do bite. And they are fast: Really fast!

My step sons had a small zoo (yes, they really did) and had a Rhesus monkey named Tim. Tim would act friendly one minute and then take a chunk out of you the next minute. The bites can take weeks or even months to heal and the infections are extremely hard to get rid of.

Yes, they do look a lot like humans, but they really don't belong 'out' where humans are, even though there are "monkey parks" in other countries where the monkeys act tame while stealing anything they can grab.

A 22 pistol with a suppressor will do the trick. Nobody further than 50 feet or so from you will ever hear it. Just be sure to use sub-sonic ammo.

We have had monkeys around for a long time!

Just like any other invasive specie to get rid of them they will have to do research, costly studies and of course to gid rid of them it must be done "humanly"

Hell for things like Cane Toads, Iguanas, Pythons the want people to "sedate them" then put in a freezer to to kill them??

Of course details must be sent to the State:confused:. Just kill the damn thing. I am not saying torture them.

Shot gun would be my preferred method.

Those monkeys from the Tarzan movies filmed at Silver Springs have made their way up into Georgia about a decade ago or so. You could always trap one and feed it to your local gator...................

A long barreled 22 LR is silent with CB caps. And deadly.
