Florida State Park | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
A family from the town of Estero visiting Silver Springs State Park suffered a shock this past week when their happy outing turned menacing due to territorial Rhesus macaque monkeys. The report from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection said that the encounter began harmlessly enough, with the family spotting several monkeys clowning around an observation deck located within the park. As the family filmed the monkeys, more and more began to arrive. Then the monkeys began to approach the park guests, who reported that they animals were making angry sounds as they drew nearer and nearer.
