MONKEYS AND US

“With monkeys increasingly visible in our urban areas, one needs to adopt pro-active approaches including :
– accepting they are part of our environment as much as we are part of theirs
– accepting they will invade our space if we create opportunity

– keeping doors and windows closed as far as possible

– keeping easy domestic food sources as inaccessible as possible

– using acceptable methods to deter them from making us and our families feel threatened.  (Here are some thoughts : https://northcoastcourier.co.za/55580/five-pain-free-ways-to-manage-the-monkey-menace/)

 

Being part of a community requires respect for others and for all creatures and we should NEVER have to resort to guns, marbles, BB guns or such like, as they pose a threat to both humans (our families and neighbours) and all animals, domestic or wild! ”
