Monkey Sighting in Thailand
The next YouTube posted at the top of this blog post takes us to Thailand. This video was shared by the Newslfare YouTube page. This channel offers amazing videos that are released worldwide. To date, they have received more than one billion views across all these clips. They share a short description of what happened in the video posted below.
“This is the astonishing moment hundreds of starving wild monkeys scramble for a single piece of food because of the coronavirus outbreak. The primates are normally well fed by tourists in the city of Lopburi, central Thailand, but visitors have plummeted because of the virus sweeping the world. So when one of the primates had a juicy banana, the entire pack roaming around the streets surrounded the creature this morning (March 11) and tried to grab it. Footage shows how hundreds of monkeys began tussling for the snack. When one of the animals fled with it, the creatures chased it up a grass bank. Even locals who are used to seeing the creatures were shocked by their ferocity.”
Monkeys Vs. Hunger
It’s hard to imagine that we could see thousands of monkeys in one place. However, this is kind of a “you have to see it to believe it” type of thing. At the start of this video, we are taken to Lopburi in Thailand.
At the start of the video, we are able to see hundreds of monkeys overtaking the street immediately. We see that are cars are slowly moving along, while others are completely stopped because they cannot get through. As the camera pans, we are able to see that there are literally thousands of monkeys crawling everywhere. It seems that they are pouring in from every possible angle imaginable.
Suddenly, at 29 seconds, someone throws a piece of food in the middle, and we see the craziest collection of monkeys all coming into the middle like never before seen.
