I just read that. When I got done I wondered where the paragraph was talking about how the monkey got blowed off the feeder leg or at least a pic of the mount?

Nobody is looking for (now) feral monkeys. I'm not sure I'd shoot one as it'd be kind of cool to have around, but if they became a problem in any way...

I'd shoot one.

I still remember a story I read on here years ago -

A guy had just climbed into his elevated box stand with his rifle. It was still dark out. He felt someone climbing the ladder and then tried to open the door. He yelled go away, I got a gun! He was scared it was a drug dealer or hyped up illegal. The banging on the door increased and he thought the perp was going t break in. He yelled again and added that he would shoot through the door. The perp kept it up so he shot through the door. Then he opened it and there laid a large monkey, maybe orangutan. He was scared ... "empty"!

Nothing cool about having them around. Monkeys are good at two things, crapping on things and tearing things up.

When I was a kid I went to my neighbors house and his dad was cooking on the pit. I asked him "Whats on the smoker?" He said "Monkey". I was like "sure what ever". He raised that lid and it was a Monkey on that pit roasting on a spit. For 20 years I thought I had ate BBQ'd Monkey that day but one day he told me it was a dang old Coon. That thing looked just like a Monkey on that pit.

Currently any exotic animal that escapes from its owner cannot be shot if it is conspicuously tagged. This law is much more recent than 1995. I'm pretty sure those monkeys aren't tagged.
