View Full Version : Don't You Love Reporters Who Try To Trivialize Stuff They Know Nothing About?

Or they wouldn't be trying to trivializing it?

Ah, this morning I read some young jackass from the New York Post poo pooing plans by Florida to exterminate a troupe of some 400 feral Rhesus monkeys "just" because 80% of them are positive for simian herpes, aka herpes B.

Wow.

I wouldn't wish a herpes B infection on a New York "Times" reporter!

(Who I consider a pack of lying *******s since the Kitty Genovese murder. Where they created, single handedly, an entire artificial meme of human indifference to others suffering. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitty_Genovese )

For those of you who don't know, simian herpes kills humans 80% of the time, but only IF you get to a doctor, (otherwise it's 100% fatal), after doing to your entire spinal cord what herpes 1 does to the corner of your lip.

Doesn't hurt the monkeys anymore than herpes 1 does to us.

But that's no reason to kill off 400 innocent little monkeys, is it?

I am sure that the people who live with the monkeys would much rather not have to worry about getting bit and dying.

If they were infected with rabies, they would already be dead. I dont mean from the rabies, but from the threat to the people

Do you have a link to the article?
I only found this NYP article (http://nypost.com/2013/09/12/herpes-infected-monkeys-terrorize-florida/) talking about the issue.

I don't see much "poo pooing" except for the interview with the tour operator/captain.
Who better to interview except someone with a true definite financial bias for one side? :rolleyes:
(I think the captain lost credibilty with me when he mentioned natural planet change processes and including man's moving of species along with it)

Are they actually killing them?
In the article it sounds like they captured 700 of the 1000 which are still alive somewhere in Florida.

Just my luck too. I'm going to be in Ocala on my upcomming FL trip.
