Monkey Farm

After the Butterfly Farm and Snake Farm we went to the Monkey Farm. When we walked in there was a monkey sitting with a man waiting to greet us. I have no idea what kind of monkey he was, but he was very cute and nice. In order to make sure the monkey didn’t escape the workers put an iron chain around his neck…As I looked out over the farm there were 30-40 monkeys in a large cage and they all had chains around their necks. To make things more depressing, over the loud speakers a sad sappy Thai song droned throughout the park. There were a lot of people who had a hard time at this place because it looked like a prison. We were fine with snakes in the cages, but because monkeys are so human-like it was difficult not to feel sorry about their imprisonment.
