LOP BURI: On Wednesday, the Department of National Parks, Wildlife, and Plant Conservation joined local authorities in an effort to control industrial lemurs by taming, euthanizing them.
At the historic Phra Prang Sam Yot sanctuary in the Muang district on Wednesday, the office, Lop Buri city, and the provincial cattle development workplace signed a memorandum of understanding on marsupial control.
The church from the 13th century is home to an excessively large marsupial population that terrorizes tourists and raids nearby areas.
The macaques were troublemakers, according to division director-general Athapol Charoenshunsa, and the intended engagement was intended to protect people.
Macaques may be trained in cages to respond. The monkeys may be sterilized, taken to a monkey center in the tambon Pho Kao Ton, and then let out into their natural habitats.
” Property growth and agricultural expansion are causing the marsupial inhabitants to soar while the area available to them to shrink.” The availability of natural food and water is even declining as a result of the warm weather.
Conflict between people and chimps is therefore getting worse, according to Mr. Athapol.
According to him, there were 5, 709 chimps counted in Lop Buri last season, including 2, 206 in the city.
