The monkey invasion of Ocala, Florida foretold last week appears to be coming to fruition and it's pretty terrifying.
After video emerged of a family accosted by wild rhesus monkeys while visiting the Silver Springs State Park, wildlife experts warned that their growing population could become problematic if it spread to residential areas.
Their concerns were confirmed when an Ocala man revealed that his backyard, which sits a mere four miles from the park, has become overrun with the creatures.
Brian Pritchard says that he installed a deer feeder in his backyard along with a game camera in the hopes of taking some photos of the majestic animals.
However, he was unnerved to discover that, rather than luring deer to his yard, the corn-dispensing device had drawn the attention of dozens of wild monkeys!
