As with most reports like this, no-one is asking WHY?

THe monkey population is an imbalance of nature. 

Why is the population so big? Why has it shifted.

I suspect just putting them in a cage will mean the popultion will just grow to replace them.

A population relies on food - if there is no food then the population will dwindle of its own accord.

With dogs the usual response is to CNVR - capture, neuter vaccinate and return - this does work but I suspect with monkeys it would be very difficult. Rather than just spaying females, castrating the males is probably easiest.


One should also be concerned about rabies - these are mamals and they bite - everyone bitten should immediately be vaccinated and so should all the monkeys.
