Anthropologist Scott McGraw declared the red colobus monkey extinct in 2000, but new findings suggest otherwise. Reportedly last seen in 1978, evidence of the red colobus has turned up, including a photograph of a dead one, the tail of a red colobus, and the skin of one killed by a hunter. On hearing the news McGraw reportedly exclaimed, “Monkey outta nowhere!”
After mauling an infant to death and attacking several people, New Delhi residents captured one difficult monkey. The animal will be sent to the city’s Monkey Rescue Center which handles nuisance primates.
We’re all for monkey rehabilitation, but what about New Delhi residents who will shudder at the cry, “Monkey outta nowhere!”? Do killer monkeys really deserve a second chance?
In an earlier post I mentioned a campaign to bring the TV show Freeks and Geeks to DVD. Apparently it worked.
However, there will be two versions available: The $120 Limited Edition set, which comes in a special yearbook with two extra DVDs of extras, and the $70 normal version (which is available at Amazon.com for $48.99).
Even the normal edition is a bit pricey for 18 episodes, but it’s a good show. Word on the street is that the licensing for the music included is what drove up hte price.
