    * Monkey threatens ship docking

    THE crew of a large cargo ship headed for Sydney have been told to catch or kill a rogue monkey running loose aboard the vessel or they will not be allowed to dock.

    A spokesman for the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) said the container ship, said to be coming from China, was due in Australian waters within two days.

    The ship's crew have sent Australian authorities photos of the animal in a bid to have it identified, but the quarantine spokesman said the shots were of a poor quality and showed only a "small brown blur".

    The crew have no idea how the animal came to be aboard and say they have not been able to get close to it since first spotting it sitting on top of a container some weeks ago.

    It has not been seen for almost three days.

    If they don't catch it soon, the ship will be sitting outside Australian waters for a bit
    If you donít like the road youíre walking on, start paving a new one.

    If they could fly, they can move to Canada You are welcome to them

    Monkeys are pretty good at chucking gobs of their poop at people/things, so I'd imagine cane toads aren't far off (visually they're pretty close after all, granted a bit closer to the size of a small cow pie).
