Coffee’s Not for Monkeys!

7 December 2017 | Posted under WWW News

A very silly monkey got himself into a lot of trouble recently.

A baby long-tailed macaque passed out with a caffeine overdose after slurping down a cup of coffee it stole from a tourist!

The thirsty monkey jumped onto a tourist’s motorbike in the Thai capital Bangkok and quickly downed the coffee. 

As the monkey was only around 6 months old, the coffee was too much and, within seconds, he collapsed.  However, quick-thinking tourists raised the alarm and veterinarians were quickly on the scene.

After giving him emergency aid, the cheeky little monkey finally came around and was soon healthy enough to join back with his troop. Two lessons learned for little monkey: don’t steal and certainly don’t drink coffee!
