On December 10, a report emerged that a tourist had been bitten by a monkey on the popular To Sae Hill viewpoint in Phuket Town. The video shared on social media shows that the man was bleeding a lot from his arm before another man helped attend to the wound to stop the blood.

 

A volunteer who takes care of monkeys on the hill said that this is not the first time that the local monkeys had attacked people, especially tourists because the tourists wither don’t know, or follow the warnings and suggestions on the signs installed on many spots on the hill in four languages; Thai, English, Chinese and Russian.

 

The volunteer also mentioned that people shouldn’t feed the monkeys with their hand directly but place the food on the ground for the monkeys to pick up. Also, people shouldn’t touch the monkeys because they can get scared and frightened, which might lead to an attack.

disgusting creatures, should be sent back to the wild or shot.  And they say that they are our ancestors.....I never liked monkeys after their antics at zoos, etc. and that movie about the yellow brick road...

Yeah the monkeys drive the locals mad but at least in Lopburi the street dogs are kept under control by the monkeys. Its the only place in Thailand that I feel sorry for the soi dogs.

I appreciate them as animals but horrible little critters close up and personal. 

Highly likely they think the same as you
