HUA HIN — Hua Hin city will spend 1.2 million baht to sterilize 1,200 macaque monkeys in a bid to control their growing population.

 

Macaques at Khao Takiab, a mountain along the famous sea resort area of Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, are popular with tourists, who often feed and take photos with them.

If someone has a tasty recipe for Macaque stir-fry or Macaque torte and shared it online I'm sure the problem would resolve itself overnight!

Locals would take the initiative for a new revenue venture.

When I was training guys in Malaysia a few of my students slaughtered one and bbq'd it. They only cooked the ribs and told me it had to be a female to be good. I declined, telling them it was like eating your little brother.

Only if you have an evil little brother.

Isn't that the mayor feeding the monkeys? Scrounging up every last vote he can.

 

There are too many monkeys at the temples here. Dangerous.
