According to a petition filed in 2013, wild monkeys living along the Silver River and Oklawaha River were being torn from their families and forest homes and sold to research and testing laboratories.

The petition states “The monkeys have lived a peaceful existence in the wild, but the State of Florida considers them to be “nonnative” and allows trapping of monkeys”.
