A nice volley of praise to whoever can spot what movie the title blurb came from first.
Apparently, squirrel monkeys in the London Zoo have been placed in a "no barrier" encolsure. No barrier enclosures are all the rage nowadays at zoos. They allow the visitors to practically walk right up to the animals (and as a result require me to constantly chase down my daughter with her Elmira-from-Tiny-Toons tendencies with animals). Well it appears that visitors attempting to talk on their phones or take pictures with their phones are having their phones stolen from them by said monkeys. The problem was so bad that the zoo had to train the monkeys not to steal the phones (through some good old-fashioned negative reinforcement).
Too bad movie theaters and universities don't employ squirrel monkeys.
