Unwelcome monkey business in Wat Phnom


Recommended Posts

Residents at Wat Phnom have raised concerns over serious problems with a troop of macaque monkeys leaving a trial of devastation in the area. Local citizen, 40-year-old Chhun Chany, said that  dozens of monkeys are posing a constant threat to local businesses and residents, with the monkeys responsible for property damage, electric cuts, fires and theft in Srah Chak commune.

 

“Many of my belongings, including clothes, phones, food and my children’s study materials have been taken by them. They have no boundaries and are entering people’s houses when they are not home, removing items and damaging property,” she said. “I am worried that when my family goes on holiday, they will know our home is empty and find a way to get inside. Also, if no one keeps a look out, the monkeys mess with electric wires, potentially causing fires,” she added.

Another local resident, Taing Phala, also said that the monkeys attacked and injured her mother while she was carrying fruit. “My mother got a serious scratch on the back of her hand as she carried fruit while heading to visit my house for the first time in the city,” she said.

Monkey lives matter!  Rioting, looting, burning businesses and homes is just considered legitimate protests in today's world...
