Pigtail macaques

53 of them escaped yesterday from the Tulane University National Primate Research Center south of Covington, and as of this moment, eight of them are still missing. They were used for breeding.

Why do I feel like there is going to be a comminity of Monkeys living on the Northshore in the next few years? If they’re still bit caught later today, I’m heading out to see if I can spot one. How often do you get a chance to see monkeys running through suburbs?

I didn’t even know Tulane had a primate program. I want to take a tour.

ADDED: All right, I actually did head up to the Northshore today to try and find those darned monkeys, somewhat unsuccessfully, although I did attract the attention of the local police. I made a little film of my tiny adventure.

    1. I’m pretty sure they’re still breeding, captive or no.

    2. A roving monkey population on the Northshore would be pretty damn hilarious.

    3. I’ve suggested that we recruit directly out of the primate center for some years now…it’s got to be easier to teach a monkey to use Windows than it is to teach some people.
