The troupe of around 200 monkeys are famous for stealing food from inside people’s houses. However, one grocery has been safe from invasion for the past month.
Sanae Phoothong, a 70-year-old former Ban Laem Chabang community president, said on Friday he set up a cage covered by black canvas with a tiger doll inside on the food store's roof.
He uses a rope hoist to lift the tiger doll in and out of the cage to give the monkeys a fright.
"First, I tied a crocodile doll to the rope hoist, but the monkeys ripped it apart," he said.
He said he would propose his monkey-scaring idea to Laem Chabang city authorities.
