  Marauding macaques
by phil_uk_net

The last time I was in Langkawi I ran into problems with marauding macaques and the same thing happened in Melaka. There were a group of them at the zoo, not zoo animals - just delinquents hanging around. They tip out the rubbish bins for food and are very aggressive if you get too close. If they are up a tree and you are below they will attempt to urinate on you. The darn things are a menace. I advocate short, sharp spells in the army or community service for all macaques. They are a menace to society.
