    I think Floridian humans probably gave it to the monkeys.

    Herpes is an STD and these monkeys were brought in to AMUSE tourists, says the article. That is a nice way of putting it.

    Well, if shit doesn't come from California it will most certainly come from Florida. Actually, I think these monkeys have already made their way to California...
