Monkey business: Researchers find origins of Florida colony

In this undated photo provided by Deborah Williams, a Vervet monkey is seen in Dania Beach, Florida. Dr. Williams, is the lead author of a study that determined where a colony of monkeys that has lived for about 70 years in urban South Florida came from. In 1948 a group of monkeys escaped from the Dania Chimpanzee Farm. Most were captured, but some disappeared into the mangrove swamp. The study determined that 41 descendants live in the area today.
