The Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay is in some big trouble after he reportedly bit a woman in south St. Petersburg.

Wildlife officials confirmed late Tuesday that the monkey, which has gained notoriety in recent years after numerous sightings throughout the bay area, bit a woman Monday in what authorities described as an "unprovoked attack."

The woman was sitting outside when the monkey bit her on her back, said Gary Morse, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. After the bite, the woman stood up and the monkey bit her again.

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

The monkey, a wild rhesus macaque, is believed to have been cast out of a colony in Silver Springs. He has reportedly been spotted around the Tampa Bay area, including Pasco County and Clearwater, and trappers have repeatedly tried to catch him.


A colony of rhesus macaques was established in the Silver River State Park in Florida around the spring of 1938. The monkeys were released by tour boat operator Colonel Tooey.

The monkey is shy and not considered a threat to humans. Its continued success at avoiding capture has been compared to the TV series The Fugitive. The monkey reportedly looks both ways to check for traffic before crossing the street. There is also speculation that the monkey has become a "drug addict" because of repeated attempts by the Florida Wildlife and Fish Commission to unsuccessfully capture the monkey through the use of tranquilizer darts.

There is also a notable colony of rhesus macaques on Morgan Island, one of the Sea Islands in the South Carolina Lowcountry. They were imported in the 1970s for use in the local labs and are by all accounts thriving.

So where's the 'mystery' here?

He might be sick, if he attacked somebody.  Poor guy, he is pretty smart I think they are going to get just racoons trying to trap him.

The Mystery Monkey wears a top hat & tails and sashays past his victims while smoking Cuban cigars.  Where the hell does a monkey get Cuban?
