Three laboratory monkeys that had took advantage of a road accident to escape from the truck that carried them to the northeastern United States were found and euthanized Saturday, announced the local authorities. The truck that carried a hundred macaques crabiers had collided with a trash truck Friday afternoon near the small town of Danville, in the center of Pennsylvania. Several monkeys "escaped from the place of the accident and disappeared in the surroundings," had tweeted the local police, calling the population not to approach animals. In the evening of Saturday, the police said that the 100 monkeys had been found. But local media, citing the American health authorities, clarified that three of them had to be euthanized. Local authorities did not explain why animals had been killed. Saturday morning, the Pennsylvania police published a photo showing a monkey perched on a tree, dazzled by a torch lamp. According to the WNEP TV channel, the police had encircled the animal and shots had been heard. The price of a crabber macaque, also called long-tail macaque, can reach $ 10,000. These widespread monkeys in Southeast Asia have been widely used in research on VACCINs against COVID, according to New York Times. They can live 30 years in captivity.

Actually, the ‘Urban’ Ford Maverick Is Better Suited for the SuburbsThe Maverick is tiny by the standards of a modern pickup truck, but take it out of that context and it's nearly two feet longer than a Volkswagen Golf or even a new Ford Escape (and an inch longer than the seven-seat Ford Explorer). Length is just one dimension, of course, but look closely at the tension between Ford's design priorities and the reality of owning a car in a city, and it's hard to deny the Maverick is really designed more for the suburban lifestyle than an urban one.
