macaque monkey eating junk food


Wild macaque monkey eating junk food (Java Island, Indonesia)

Tentatively identified as Macaca fascicularis.

Locals often feed them junk food, and wild monkeys also manage to snatch food from people's bags.­

Monkeys found out that the "good" stuff is inside the plastic bag, and they throw away the wrapping everywhere, causing even more plastic trash in the landscape.­

Please, people, feed monkeys fruits, not human junkfood!
