More than 20 long-tailed macaques raided a vocational college in Krabi's Klong Thom district on Wednesday morning, apparently to search for food.

The monkeys came down from the hills behind an army base in the district and searched through garbage bins. 

 

They also ransacked teachers' rooms and classrooms and caused damage to the school.

The primates were apparently not afraid of the teachers and threatened anyone approaching them.

 

Chinachipa Dungsuksai, head of accounts at the college, said the monkeys raided the building for three days running looking for food and sparking fears they would injure someone

Suwat Suksri, head of Thung Thalae Wildlife Sanctuary, said officers tried to lure the monkeys with fruit to cages, which might take a few days. 

 

Suwat said drought has caused food scarcity in the forests, forcing the monkeys to look elsewhere for food.

From the headline I thought it was my inlaws  who raided the college looking for a free meal.  :whistling:

They forgot to mention five graduated. 

No doubt they are intelligent enough to graduate from a Thai college. But I would be worried that they could not pay their way out if difficulties arose in a subject.
