HUA HIN: -- Some 500 long-tailed macaques from a 3,000-strong population at Khao Takieb and Suan Ling areas in Prachuap Khiri Khan's Hua Hin district are being lured into cages prior to moving them for sterilization.

 

Local residents complained of too many monkeys, and too much monkey-theft mischief. The monkeys are getting used to the cages and Pantainorasingh Wildlife Sanctuary officials before they will be shut into the cages and transported to the Hua Hin Dog Shelter for sterilization by veterinarians from the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation and from Mahidol University.

 

The macaques would be allowed some time to rest at the shelter before being released back into their home habitat. Officials hope the sterilization program will control the macaque population.
