There's going to be a lot of fat monkeys laying about down South

with nothing to do,they must have a special dept. in the EU,just

thinking up stupid ideas,and they think of a lot.

Perhaps put them all on the EU monkey mountain, next to the butter mountain.

mrs can outclimb the best of them 

Do the monkeys get a decent wage, holidays and a pension?

Do these idiots know that the growers have to send their monkeys to "monkey school" to learn how to do it?

Why not have the monkies sign an afadavit attesting that they are not under duress and have chosen the nut gathering as a vocation?  

 

It is the leash that frightens the westerners.. It is a western perception,  and perception is reality.

 

  Get rid of the leash and it will pass muster.

So, if the monkeys are not used, what point in keeping them? (farmers sensible logic). Within a few years a lot less monkeys - guess the petfood industry will take them.

 

Humane, yes?

It's nothing to do with the EU it's the importers and distributors if it's happening at all.

The animal rights activists may be agitating to stop the use of monkeys but again it's not the EU.

I guess we will see "no monkeys were used in the harvesting of these coconuts" on my can of biological free trade coconut milk soon.

The nuts in this thread are those who believe it's the EU.

Well, as the EU is the biggest coconut importer in the world, i guess Thailand has to suck it up. 

 

Now nearly all Coconuts come from the philiphines, good job PH. Nearly nothing gets imported from TH.

 

 

I see a lot of coconut milk from Thailand in my supermarket but I will look when I next shop as I am now curious to see where it comes from.

Could very well be that different products are from different exporting markets. 
Stuff like coconut milk and water might be from Thailand instead of PH. 

 

But anyway, there are a lot of anti animal cruelty laws etc in the EU and US now and exporting countries have to either accept that or sell somewhere else...

So if they are objecting to monkeys being used as part of the agricultural process, when will they stop importing vegatables from countries which use oxen, buffaloes etc to plough fields?

Pigs in a slaughter house or monkeys up a tree? 

 

Ask the pigs? They would opt for coconut work if they could.

Actually years ago it was the monkeys sending their humans to collect the coconuts. In the end if you want to do a job well you have to do it yourself.

Funny. The Eco-Terrorists of the EU and worldwide say and do nothing about the rampant corruption in Thailand that is a poisonous thorn in a foot....but when it comes to monkeys earning a honest living....🤔

So better to stick with human abuse and employ the locals to collect the coconuts.

Your moral compass is skewed. Cruelty is cruelty.

 The human employees will be better treated.
