That’s how the vendors described the simian raiders that, as with another culprit captured last week, are believed to have come from neighbouring Lop Buri province, as stowaways on a produce truck.
The latest pair were caught in cage-traps at Wat Thaiyan in Tambon Sala Daeng in Muang district and taken to the police station for their “arrest” to be recorded.
Then they were trucked to a wildlife rescue centre in Nakhon Nayok, according to Suchart Srithai, director of the Department of Natural Resources office in Ang Thong.
The two monkeys had been living on rooftops near a fresh market for days, climbing down to snatch fruit and vegetables and even ransacking houses.
