Gainesville residents going bananas over wild monkey roaming the city
The monkey business continues as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission searches for the Patas monkey first spotted last week in Gainesville. FWC Public Information Coordinator Karen Parker says, while Patas monkeys can be aggressive, this animal seems to present no danger.
If the monkey is spotted, Parker asks the public not to feed him and to call the FWC wildlife alert number. Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Lisa Greenberg says more on what you can do to help officials bring the monkey in to custody.
