Rhesus macaques invade Florida man's home

More than 50 monkeys descend on a Florida man's backyard every morning to help themselves to the food from his deer feeder.

Brian Pritchard lives just four miles away from Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, Florida, where a growing population of aggressive monkeys has forced wildlife officials to consider ways to better control the numbers of primates.

Pritchard, who set up a camera to capture the deer, shared photographs of gangs of rhesus macaques, who leave his yard stinking with feces, WFTV reported.

Some boneheaded theme park owner brought them in from SE Asia in the 1930's. They've been breeding and spreading their territory ever since.

At least they aren't asking for SNAP benefits.

They have taken over parts of the state park as well. There is video of them attacking people at the park.
