Im pretty sure they were that says to me they were aware what they were doing is wrong on so many levels but yet they still do it, its shocking really!

I saw on FB yesterday a guy that climbed on his roof at a leopard sighting and another clown that walked from his car to another car and stood their at a lion sighting! Its dispicable what is wrong with people that they cant just obey the rules of the park these arent children theyre adults its pure nauseating
Im still In LOVE with my Kruger!

It was a little black monkey, and it did have a nappy on. I know we also felt it was wrong the monkey was not found entering the park, but that is a whole other issue.

Well Jock you did the right thing by reporting them, they must know it was wrong to bring it into Kruger, as they must have hidden it to get it in, so not so innocent :roll:

Seriously, though, the issue was not only that an exotic monkey would almost certainly have been eaten if it had escaped in Kruger but also that there is a real danger that it could bring in disease that could kill our indigenous wildlife. Glad these - let me be nice - ignorant citizens were suitably apprehended. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you, onewithnature for making a strong statement/opinion with your word choice than what I have seen of other chosen words used on the forum.

The mods do a pretty fair job of policing language that is outside the rules, and there is always the ! button if you find offense. :thumbs_up:

I'm glad that the monkey owners were caught! And speaking of foreign species, there is a vervet monkey troop in Dania Beach, FL, and has been there since the 1950's. Animals can and do escape (or are let go) and make themselves at home.

Girivana Dam near Satara.This lady was watching as lions sat in the road in front of their car. The 15 lions were moving down to the dam but these people could apparently only see them if they stood up through the sun-roof hatch. All three of the occupants took it in turns to do this, unconcerned that they might be spoiling the sighting for other people, spoiling their photos, putting their own and other people's lives at risk (no one would be able to just sit by and watch them being dragged from the roof) - oh and breaking the rules . . . .

Thank you forum friends. :thumbs_up: Sometimes it is important to say what you want, but only by being sensitive to the language used. I have found that good language often carries more impact as people tend to take you more seriously. Some people believe in saying it as it is, but when the language is foul or inappropriate, it often detracts from the message intended. After all, very few people take a ranting diva seriously. :wink: As Stark says, the mods do a pretty good job of overseeing the language used on this public forum (thank you, mods :clap: :clap: :clap: ) and they're not shy in warning and/or banning people who run afoul of their rules. Overall, compared to what I have seen on most other public forums, we have a good standard of communication here - let's keep it that way. :thumbs_up:

Yet another ignorant family. So many people apparently think wild animals are tame and won't do anything to humans. It's sad that this trend seems to be gaining momentum as it is increasing the risk that, one day, something serious will happen to the transgressors when they least expect it. Let's hope that never happens, but also that more wisdom can be injected into the general populace so that they are more respectful of our animals. :pray: :pray:

I have been given two email addresses that one can send photos to for action to be taken. One needs to put some information to assist - the date, and on which road in the park the photo was taken and I'm sure an approximate time would help.
