Aggressive Angkor Wat Monkeys Get Relocated

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

My first apartment in Phnom Penh was just off the riverside near Wat Phnom. I can tell you from experience that living around Macaques might be pleasing and amusing at first but that doesn't last long. I had a big chain link cage around my roof and balcony, and I tried to keep it secure. A gang of monkeys would sleep around midday in the gap between that cage I lived in and the awning above. They were always trying to get in, and sometimes succeeded. They would fuck up everything. They stole food, clothes and anything they couldn't eat they just destroyed, like plants for example. I hated the fuckers. They were scared of airsoft guns though, which were banned around then. :twisted:
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Yeah, I don't think I would want them on my balcony either. If I do get an invasion, I have a plan.
