DANVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A truck carrying about 100 monkeys was involved in a crash Friday in Pennsylvania, state police said as authorities searched for at least three of the monkeys that appeared to have escaped the vehicle.
The truck carrying the animals crashed with a dump truck in the afternoon in Montour County, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Andrea Pelachick told the Daily Item.
The truck had been on its way to a lab, Pelachick said.
Authorities have asked residents who might see the monkeys to call state police at 570-524-2662.
It was unclear if any people or animals were injured in the crash.
Were they bringing them to replace the Senate?
The White House in DC is full of them
In unrelated news, nearby supermarkets reported runs on their supplies of bananas…
Has anyone checked the A&P in Queens?
No monkey business here!
I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.
Was the driver monkeying around? What kind of money business was this company running? The cargo certainly made a monkey out of the truck driver. Those cheeky monkeys!!!
I bet you the police had more fun than a barrel of monkeys
What’s going on with this monkey business?
IT’S THE ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS MIDDOS MACHINE
In unrelated news bananas suddenly disappeared from nearby supermarkets…
My thoughts exactly
No useful remedy or important medical knowledge was ever gained through vivisection (operations on live animals) that could have been accomplished via dissection. This perspective has been around for many, many years and is well-documented.
Vivisection conveniently came into vogue for the most part when Edward Jenner, famous apothecary [druggist] (and later doctor by mail-order college degree) equated smallpox with cowpox, and created the smallpox serum-industry by renting use of cows and other livestock from local farms, tying them down, and creating multiple small gash wounds on their underbellies (purportedly at least under some anaesethic), and then ‘farming’ the blister pus a week or so later, bottling and injecting it. Smallpox was eventually conclusively diagnosed (by a Texas government medical department doctor) to be caused by toxins released by the common bedbug. (Improved hygiene and sanitation were also important factors for resistance to the illness.)
No important medicine or medical procedure has been ever been gained using animal vivisection – this is an historic and well-documented perspective supported by many doctors for many years, especially by those who believe that germ theory has never been proven (an idea that is also well explained and documented).
