How do zoo staff deal with the issue of monkeys flinging excrement at zoo visitors? Do you employ behavior modification? Do you isolate them, take them out of the display area when they're misbehaving? Is it a matter of managing the relationships among the monkeys, i.e. making sure that these two aren't on display at the same time, etc?
Many thanks in advance.
