The newspaper said that Leilit Janchoom, 48, had beaten the monkey whenever he showed any hesitance to climb a tree.
The owner was insistent because he got the equivalent of 4p for every coconut picked.
But the monkey - it is claimed - apparently found the work boring, strenuous and unrewarding.
So, the monkey chucked a well-aimed coconut on Janchoom, and killed him!
