While there may be no “Apes Planet” sometime soon there is an island on the monkeys, or, more precisely, an island “monkey” monkey released from a US Test Laboratory
According to The Sun were “monster” chimps infected with infectious diseases before being “abandoned on the Liberian River Island after being released by their prisoners.”
“Junglin’s Wilderness – known for locals as” Monkey Island “- is now home to more than 60 chimpanzees famous for its beaches,” reports the outlet. “Many of the animals are said to be” super aggressive “and those living nearby are afraid to go there for fear of being attacked.”
The monkeys are sometimes visited by some brave locals who bring 60 chimps of food, but they rarely leave the boat and even then they are not completely free from monkey violence. In fact, tourists who pay local fishermen to drive them past the island ̵
1; on the Farmington River – are typically “pelted with mango of territorial chimpanzees.” The monkeys have earned an almost mythical reputation among locals, who say that the chimpanzees will eat and attack those who set foot on their soil.
“They will eat you raw!” a villager warned a journalist.
Security guards warn that all strangers will face deadly power. “If you are a weird person when you go there they become aggressive,” says Jerry, a “security guard” on the island.
Fortunately, the chimpanzees are completely isolated on the island and will not swim over. “But the only chimpanzees, they are afraid of water. They do not swim over. They just go by the water,” Jerry said.
Even the monkeys are unrelated to Charlton Heston, they began their journey at an American driving laboratory in Liberia. The sun gave more history:
The chimps were all experimented at a controversial virus test laboratory (Vilab) established by the New York Blood Center (NYBC) in Liberia in 1974.
They were infected with diseases such as hepatitis and “river blindness” to help researchers develop vaccines to be used on sick people.
After more than 40 years of experiment, NYBC completed the Liberian project after a campaign of animal activists and chimpanzees were left on the island with some natural food or water.
The original care donors, many of whom have worked with chimpanzees since the 1970s, were paid to take them food and water every other day.
The monkeys began starving in 2014 after the Ebola epidemic, which prevented the janitor from visiting the island. The Human Society then went in to take care of the chimpanzees in 2015. By 2017, NYBC promised “£ 5million to pay for their future food and medical needs.”
