PHUKET: The first day of catching monkeys at Baan Yamu in Pa Khlok, on Phuket’s east coast, yesterday (June 12) so that the monkeys can be sterilised saw 34 wild monkeys snared, officials have reported.

 

Officials placed food inside cages so that the monkeys, still covered in grey mud from the nearby mangroves, would enter to eat, explained Pongchart Chouehorm, Director of the Khao Phra Thaew Natural and Wildlife Education Centre located just a handful of kilometres down the road.

 

On site to help carry out the monkey catching campaign were Phanthai Norasing from the Khlong Saeng Wildlife Research Station also located at the Khao Phra Thaew Non-Hunting Area as well as veterinarians from the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP).
