You Can’t Teach an Old Monkey to Have a Hangover…

When a monkey, already embittered by so many years in a cage, takes to drink… we may as well tell you that he’s going to be a mean drunk. After having disfigured at least 250 people, mainly women and children, and after one of his victims has already succumbed to her injuries, it was decided to imprison the monkey “Kalua”, all of 60 cm tall, for life and permanently ban him from consuming the alcohol that “makes him wild”.

We cannot help thinking, not really knowing where the blame lies in this tragedy, if it has been decided to shut the animal away “for good”, whether, in the end, depriving him of his favourite tipple too is not even crueller than a “final draught” at the veterinary surgery…
