With a wild monkey on the loose, there’s no telling what could happen at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Bloomberg has a quirky video interview set to monkey music out today with animal trapper Vernon Yates. He has been searching for a mystery monkey for well over a year.
As you’ll note, Vernon prefers the word “anywheres.”
“He didn’t get anywheres near the convention center,” Vernon said, but added a warning. “However, he was north of here. As fast as a monkey moves, he could be here within a day or so.”
“The monkey is so agile he could be anywheres in this building,” Vernon continued, explaining he could be in the palm trees, climbing the sides of the buildings, or in the treasured “crotch of the oak tree” where he’d be totally hidden. But, he says, “If the monkey had any brain at all, he’ll stay out of here … if he entered the building you could almost guarantee that he would be shot.”
Watch here. It’s worth it.
