Schroevers runs the Monkey Training School in Surat Thani, Thailand, a Buddhist-inspired school founded 50 years ago to teach monkeys how to pick coconuts without the use of force or violence. He says Animal Place has it all wrong when it comes to how most monkeys that work on coconut farms are treated.

Arjen S. is a fellow Dutchy and he wrote an open letter to this blog about monkeys and coconut picking . It's a good read (Google Translate should be able to not butcher Dutch to English too badly).

Your english has become better than native english speakers, all of a sudden.

Yinn has, perfectly acceptably, just copied the 10th paragraph of the quoted article, which was written by a native English speaker. They weren't her words.

Pigs enjoy looking for truffles, and they're not abused into doing it. The opposite is true for monkeys collecting coconuts. Wake up, Attawich.

<deleted>. How do you know monkeys don't enjoy collecting coconuts but pigs enjoy looing for truffles? I'm sure pigs would be far happier rolling aroud in mud. I don't expect any better response for a typical thai-based farang moaner of course.

The truffles are also taken away, with the pig probably only given one from all the ones it finds. Now that's abuse.

Give 'em some swill - they don't know price of truffles.  Giving a pig a truffle would be like "casting pearls truffles before swine".

I could not agree with you more. PETA is a very dangerous organization who are very quick to accuse with absolutely no proof to back up their claims. This attack on these monkeys is one such example! Has any official PETA representative actually been here to see how they are treated??  

I've always known PETA is be an extremist organization, and yes, dangerous.  They promote a vegan lifestyle, which should tell you a lot.  With all the slaughterhouses in the USA, you'd think PETA would be busy over there...yet, they have time to come to Thailand and harass the Thais about monkey picking coconuts.  Give me a break.

Follow the money.

PETAi s a US organisation

The US is currently engaged in a trade war with the far East under Donald Trump's protectionist policy.

Florida produces Coconut milk

Thai coconut milk is regarded as better quality than Florida and is cheaper to produce

The UK wants to be a trading partner with the US post Brexit

As they say in the US 'Do the Math'

I would suppose that much of the badmouthing of Thai culture on this forum is done by those who who do not or are not allowed to live in Thailand.
