Facebook user Tsai Huan-dong (蔡煥棟) posted a photo of three Formosan macaques, with one being particularly fat, and captioned the photo “The fatty at Dengxian Bridge of the Donghe-Fuli Highway.” The post prompted comments from other users, including “Really too fat,” “So fat,” “Eat too well,” and “Sad to watch…don’t feed again,” CNA reported.
The county’s agricultural department said that the county put in place regulations four years ago that stipulate fines of up to NT$10,000 (US$334) for those caught feeding wild monkeys.
However, according to the department, no tickets have yet been issued, as it’s not easy to catch violators. [FULL STORY]
