 Reports suggest that one of the animals was spotted in a tree off Route 54 soon after the crash and was swiftly apprehended. Yet, three more primates remain at large. A helicopter was engaged in the operation to help with the search for the missing creatures.

A vehicle carrying 100 monkeys to a lab collided with a dump truck off Interstate 80 near Danville, Pennsylvania on Friday, American media reported. According to the State police, at least four apes managed to escape the truck and has went missing.

This "Fait-Divers" or innocuous news came today at the time I was INVESTIGATING Monkey Island (Morgan Island).


Morgan Island is a 4,489-acre (1,817-hectare) marshland island that consists of 635 acres (257 ha) of upland. The island is located between the Morgan and Coosaw rivers and borders the Saint Helena Sound to the south and Parrot Creek (Klopchin) to the north. The marshland area includes three major tidal creeks as well as other small creeks.[1] Morgan Island is uninhabited, and is home to a breeding colony of approximately 3,500 free-ranging, Indian-origin rhesus monkeys (Maier). There is a 370-acre (150 ha) portion of upland that supports a semi-tropical maritime forest where the monkey colony primarily resides. This colony is fed by automated systems of which are activated inside a building along the north coast of the island.[1]

Though the article says these monkeys have had their "origins" in a US lab (Puerto Rico?), the island is verbotten to the public... According to my info, these monkeys (same species as the ones in the truck) were infected with the most virulent Herpes virus in the name of research and then released on Morgan Island once the research has been done. THEIR DESCENDANTS ARE STILL CONTAGIOUS...  Let's hope that the monkeys "going to a lab" in Pennsylvania will be treated well and not used like substitutes to humans in a COVID experiment...

The last of the monkeys that escaped after a truck crash on a Pennsylvania highway has been accounted for, authorities say.

Several monkeys escaped following Friday’s collision between a ute and a truck towing a trailer carrying 100 monkeys, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Only one remained unaccounted for as of Saturday morning, prompting the Pennsylvania Game Commission and other agencies to launch a search for it amid frigid weather.


Kristen Nordlund, a spokeswoman with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an email on Saturday evening that all 100 of the cynomolgus macaque monkeys had since recaptured, with three having to be euthanised.

The monkeys shipment was en route to a CDC-approved quarantine facility after arriving on Friday morning at New York’s Kennedy Airport from Mauritius, police said.

The location of the quarantine facility and the type of research for which the monkeys were apparently destined weren’t clear, but cynomolgus monkeys are often used in medical studies.

Earlier, police had urged people not to look for or capture any monkey, with troopers tweeting: “Anyone who sees or locates the monkey is asked not to approach, attempt to catch, or come in contact with the monkey. Please call 911 immediately.”

Trooper Lauren Lesher had said the concern was “due to it not being a domesticated animal and them being in an unknown territory. It is hard to say how they would react to a human approaching them.”

A crash witness, Michelle Fallon, told the Press Enterprise newspaper of Bloomsburg that she was behind the ute when it was hit on the passenger side by the dump truck, tearing off the front panel of the trailer and sending more than a dozen crates tumbling out.

She and another motorist who stopped to help were standing near the scene when the other driver said he thought he saw a cat run across the road, Fallon said.

Fallon peeked into a crate and saw a small monkey looking back at her.


“They’re monkeys,” she told the other motorist.

Hopefully the beasts (or human cousins) do not carry any nasty diseases, YET... I suppose that in the labs, they won't be treated like royals... They will be poked and infected with something...
