I discussed this same issue with a Thai friend and he said it was nonsense ....  he said it's half a dozen monkeys that the farmer uses to show off to tourists, and they throw a few baht to him for the show,  he said it's done on several farms but it is in no way unethical or harmful to the monkeys,  it's not a use of labour as there are workers who perform these tasks daily.

Ban the cows forced to give milk in concentration camps while you're at it. Also, the chickens locked in close confinement forced to produce eggs.. Disgusting..
