Prachuap: Monkeys at the justice ministry force evacuation

Recommended Posts

They also cause problems at the junction by the old town hall. They run across the road and vehicles have to swerve or to brake suddenly. It is hard to avoid that junction as it is on the main road into the town.

When they have a big festival in the area around the Temple, they round up and move the monkeys. Why do they keep bringing them back??

There are literally thousands of these creatures up on the hill adjacent to the government offices. The local government  deserve this fate. Nothing has been done for years now. I have seen this firsthand on my visits there. It is beyond bizarre. 

 

It is simply further evidence that Thailand is NOT a foreign country. It is a distant planet.

Much better than barking dogs.

No point having a dog and barking yourself

Those d*mn monkeys have been there forever, or at least since 1983 when I first went to PKK.  I don't know why the government has never had them removed permanently but they haven't.  They are always there every time I have been in town.

Excellent, maybe they'll now do something to reduce the number of these aggressive vicious animals that plague parts of PKK.

Tried climbing the hill to Wat Khao Cong Kaew a few years back. Had my then 4 year old with me. Mission aborted.

 

A French couple decided to continue, came back, both bitten, off to hospital for rabies shots.

 

The Langars at Khao Lom Muak are the absolute opposite. Beautiful creatures. I think many things about the Thai military, but that base is one of my favourite Thai destinations.

Great story,  Great fun. Shame some stuck up expats have to be so serious about it

 

Lopburi has similar problems. Well worth a visit to see the monkey feast.

The monkeys were here before you.
