Monkey see, monkey do. Or in this case, monkey brawl.Hundreds of monkeys that were once fed by tourists in Lopburi, Thailand invaded a street and pummeled each other as they fought over a single banana this past Wednesday.According to the Daily Mail, the macaques – an Old World species of monkeys that inhabit Asia – are normally well-fed by visitors to the town. But tourism has dropped since COVID-19 fears have increased.The primates were apparently part of two rival gangs of monkeys, those that live in the city and a group that inhabits local temples, the Bangkok Post reported.
It's amazing the chain reactions that happen in eco systems when things change, in this case tourists go away.
