A monkey is on the move, stalking people in Tampa.
Residents across Tampa Bay have spotted it five times in two weeks: climbing a tall tree in East Tampa; sitting on a back porch north of Town N' Country; crossing a road in Palm Harbor.
If it is the same monkey — and wildlife experts believe it is — it has traveled at least 21 miles in 11 days.
It is believed to be a macaque, among the more temperamental in the primate family, also among the most plentiful.
No one knows where it came from. Eleven people across Florida have licenses to own macaques as personal pets. Another 41 breed or exhibit macaques. But no one in Tampa, FL has reported a missing macaque.
The macaque (pronounced muh-kak) was spotted again Monday in Palm Harbor, less than half a mile from where it was observed at an apartment complex on Sunday. One person reported seeing it hop over a wall. Another said it crossed the street and disappeared into the woods.
Several efforts have been made to trap it in a cage, and tranqulize dart it.
So far, the monkey has the upper hand on Tampa Police.
Tampa Residents have been advised to go and get a restraining order against the Monkey, and call the Tampa Police Department if it violates it.
A Tampa Police Spokeswoman told residents to remain calm, and call the nearest Tampa Police Station if sighted.
Tampa Police also said it if is seen more than 3 times, in the same tree, they will have the Monkey jailed on aggravated stalking charges, and sent to primate prison!
Here's my story - any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have lived at my current residence for 6 years as well as my neighbor 2 houses down. We were warned about her the day we moved in and have always avoided any contact but up until 2 weeks ago that all changed. This lady has consistently sped through our neighborhood with no regard to children playing nearby. My wife as well as other neighbors would occassionally motion to her to slow down but just ignored. I finally witnessed her careless driving when she almost struck my child. I walked down to her house staying in the road making sure not to go on her property and told her she needed to slow down. We ended up getting in a hollering match (no threats). She told me that kids belonged on sidewalks not in the road - well our neighborhood doesn't have sidewalks. So I used some choice words and that was it. Later that day (6 hrs) a knock on my door & there was the police. She said she was in fear of her life. I explained the situation to the police and there was nothing they could do since a moving violation has to be witnessed by the police. A few days later in the evening, I am at the end of my driveway on my motorcycle waiting to pull out as a car is approaching & it was her she nearly hit me. So I walked down rapidly this time b/c this is the 2nd time in less than a week & I feel she did it just b/c she knows she can now and I tell her again that she needs to slow down, etc. This time I call the police to report (as well as she did). Same story, they can't do anything unless they witness it or I have a mark on me. 2 days later, I am served with injunction papers for repeat violence with a court date to determine if it is warranted. Court day - I bring 4 witnesses, 12 written testimonies, police reports from both incidents proving she lied on her injunction paperwork, speeding ticket info I found online where she received 2 recent speeding tickets within a day of each other (proving she has no regard for the law) and the judge doesn't want to see any of it. She got all the time in the world to state her side, then when it came to my turn I got to explain the first incident & he was ready to make a ruling. I asked the judge if I could finish my side of the story and he immediatley got an attitude and said I was going to dismiss this but I think you are argumentative & confrontational and issued a 90 day injunction only b/c I asked to finish. He stated in court he could not control my freedom of speech & that he could not control her speeding. So how can he then go & grant this without any wrongdoing just b/c I asked to take up a lil bit more of his time? I am in the public safety field & fear this will not be over come my 90 days. She will either make more false allegations of violating the injunction or request an extension before it expires. Since we live w/in less than 500 feet of each other I am not allowed to go past my property line towards her house. Is there a way to appeal an injunction? Do I have sufficient info to file a claim against the judge? What should I do, other than avoid this lady at all means?

NYC Restraining Order Help Needed
If anyone in NYC, N.Y. can help James out with his restraining order situation, please contact him.
Hello, my name is James I have a Federal Officer position with the United States Department of Treasury, and I am currently going through a situation in which my soon to be ex-wife filed for a restraining order against me and its simply to destroy my life. I suspected she was cheating and I told her I want a divorce on December 6, 2009. She agreed to leave our home and go live with her mother. The next day she went to the police telling them nothing but lies claiming I previously hit her, I'm sending her threatening text messages and making many threatening phone calls to her. She also stated that I said I would kill her and she can never leave me. Everything she indicated in the restraining order was a lie and made absolutely no sense. I stayed in our home and she moved some of her things from our home. Then on December 8, 2009, she went to the police and claimed I was in front of her mothers home at 7am, in the morning just sitting in my car. The police came to my home in the evening and although I told the police I could prove I was at work all day from 7am, to 3:30pm, they still arrested me and I spent 20 hours in jail for absolutely nothing. During the final hearing for the restraining order my soon to be ex-wife testified for approximately 45 minutes and she went on and on telling lies about how I hit her and chocked her on numerous occasions. She claimed I was a heavy alcohol drinker. She stated I have relatives in my family who have murdered police officers. She discussed how she was raped when she was in high school and she is fearful of many things. She cried three times during her testimony. She stated she never went to the police before when I previously hit her because she thought you could only go to the police if you have marks on your body. This is a woman with a Bachelors degree, she is a teacher and clearly knows you can go to the police for almost anything. When I testified of course I denied ever hitting her because I never hit her or any other woman in my entire life. I provided phone records to the judge showing that I never called her because I was pretty much done with the marriage and I never called her during the days surrounding the incident. The only text message I sent her was that I want a divorce. I provided the judge with emails from her leading up to the incident with her indicating she is the one who wants to stop drinking and potentially has a drinking problem. My attorney informed me that almost in all these cases the judge sides with the woman in New Jersey. The judge made the decision to issue a permanent restraining order with no real evidence. How can these laws be Constitutional? She was able to obtain a permanent restraining based on lies. I am the only victim in this situation and there has to be a way that I can obtain justice in the United States of America. Can you please provide me with people I can possibly contact to help me with this situation. Thank you James 718-757-2570
