Monkeys in Florida have deadly herpes, so please don’t touch them – The Verge

So how worried should people actually be about those herpes B-infected monkeys in Florida? Not terrified, but cautious, Wisely says. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said in a statement that it supports “active management to remove these threats.” In the meantime, Wisely says, if you are tempted to feed, snuggle, or attempt a selfie with the wildlife, just don’t. “It doesn’t do the wildlife any good,” Wisely says, “and it doesn’t do you any good.”
