The monkeys.  by leananiemand

The monkeys.

There are always loads of monkeys at the temples and I can sit and watch them for hours, they are so human like. I read that in 1993 a female woodcutter, captured a naked, longhaired boy ambling about on all fours with a troop of monkeys in the jungle near her home. She handed him over to the police, who placed him in a private welfare centre. How sad it that, putting him in a welfare home, but then, one could hardly leave him in the woods.
Wonderful expression on the baby monkey's face. Fav

Look at those eyes! I wonder how the boy felt about all that- sounds like a real-life "Jungle Book" story.
