Tis a Gibbon rather than a monkey.

I watched a Black Gibbon do buch the same thing to a maccaque in Borneo 18 months ago. Both animals were young but the speed and agility of the gibbon was driving the maccaque absolutely buggo.

Don't ever mess with monkeys.


Back in the late 1970s, whilst camping beside a south India mahseer river (me and a girlfriend, for ten to twelve weeks, in a tiny tent), a big, male Bonnet macaque broke into said tent, whilst we were out fishing, then broke into my rucsac, and found a 1000-yard bulk spool of 20-odd pound Sylcast mono...


Male Bonnet macaques, by the way, have: a) attitude, and B) very large teeth (which they know how to use...)


Sack over heavily line-trussed monkey's head, first (with some difficulty and with much screaming from the monkey and from the two of us)


Twenty minutes of judicious line-cutting ensued, with the monkey becoming ever more mobile and more dangerous...


Finally, after many scratches from its vicious fingernails / claws I told my girlfriend, "I am going to remove the sack from its head next. As I do so, RUN!"


We ran like the devil in one direction, with Mr Monkey going the other way, both parties eventually turning to gibber, snarl and gesticulate rudely at each another...


As I said, don't mess with monkeys.
