So, this monkey was first discovered at the SAS. There would be a sighting on the roof top every so often. We all kept waiting for him to make his way back across the highway that borders one side of the school and back into the dense jungle on the other side.
Then we started spotting him in the neighborhood. Neighbors started calling the environmental protection agency and the school to encourage someone to trap the monkey. Occasionally we’ll see a small trap set up on campus …this always seems like a weak attempt…perhaps more to appease the parents than to actually trap the monkey.
Recently, the monkey has been hanging out in the neighborhood as if he’s a neighbor! He’s on our fences,
in our garbage cans,
and littering from our trees!
Well, he’s a strange monkey. At first I thought he must be sick in some way – to leave his monkey family and hang out in our neighborhood. But, now that I’ve seen him up close, I think he looks pretty healthy and just a touch liking the human food too much!
