A single monkey contracted pneumonia at the California National Primate Research Center in Davis, CA, but within weeks several monkeys were dead and three people got sick.
Confirming early suspicions, a new report states that the outbreak was the first known incident of an adenovirus jumping from primates to humans. The upside: the monkeys now have their pick of the white ladies. Monkeydingo, anyone?
The monkeys are reportedly love hungover and have the munchies. The scientists all went for a cigarette and then came back to high-five the lead monkey.
